Moving Beyond Words - 5 week online course

About this event

This course is for family carers supporting people living with dementia in Greater Manchester. The course will support carers to identify and try out creative ways to stay connected without relying on speech. This approach will empower a person with dementia to stay connected or reconnect to a social world when they can no longer use words.

Family caregivers are encouraged to look for connection rather than meaning:

'Makes you realise communication is not all about words'

The courses are run online over 5 weeks and each session is 2.15hrs.

The course will also introduce carers to the work of Dr Maggie Ellis's work around Adaptive Interactions with an opportunity to join Maggie on a further course in the future.
