*NEW* CARER TRAINING SESSIONS BEING OFFERED IN 2019.

Dementia Awareness

 


Dementia Awareness

Thursday 7th February, 9.30am – 12.30pm

 

Thursday 14th March, 9.30am – 12.30pm

Dementia Awareness: Aims to • Describe the nature of the differing types of dementia • Explain possible ways to prevent dementia • Detail how the differing types of dementia may shape behaviour and experience, and deal with behaviour that might challenge carers • Demonstrate how to improve communication • Explain person-centred ways in which people with dementia can be helped to lead more fulfilling daily lives, including the development of meaningful activity.

In collaboration with Worcestershire Association of Carers, Age UK Herefordshire & Worcestershire are offering training opportunities for carers in 2019.

Just like with our Falls, Fractures & Frailty sessions in 2018, family carers will have the chance to learn alongside care workers, sharing experience and skills.

These group sessions are highly recommended and provide valuable information, advice and practical skills. They are relevant for family carers in all types of caring roles.

We are pleased to offer this at the hugely-discounted contribution of just £10 per session which pays towards the training session materials, session certificates and refreshments.

Places are allocated on a first come first served basis and all strictly booked via Age UK Herefordshire & Worcestershire’s training department (see details below).

All the sessions take place at: Age UK Herefordshire & Worcestershire offices, Malvern Gate Business Park, Bromwich Road, Worcester WR2 4BN.

Who are the sessions for?

These training sessions are advertised to Care Workers from Residential and Nursing Homes and Domiciliary Care Agencies.  This training is also excellent for family carers who will find this training invaluable in supporting their caring role and want to receive the same training as Care Workers.
