Understanding Dementia and working creatively with older people
Fri 24 March 2017, 10:00 – 15:30 GMT
Nottingham’s Imagine - arts and older people programme is offering an exciting training session for artists and staff working in the care sector. As part of the Imagine programme we have been exploring creative ways of working with older people in care and those living with dementia. This includes movement sessions and multi-sensory approaches. This training is being run in partnership with Dementia Lead Kate Fisher from Methodist Homes and Creative Practitioner Andrea Haley.
The training day covers:
- working with empathy and understanding more about the impact of dementia
- the use of non-verbal communication with people living with dementia
- examples of working creatively – Imagine programme
- practical ways of using multi-sensory approaches with older people
- practical examples of supporting movement based work with older people
This training day, which would normally cost £90, is subsidised by the Imagine - arts and older people programme and costs ONLY £20. The day includes lunch.
