FUN AND FUNCTIONAL ACTIVITIES FOR PEOPLE WITH DEMENTIA
Monday 11 February 2019
Activities for people with dementia are the foundation of care and everyday life. They create opportunities for success, enhancement of self-esteem, and well-being within the care environment for both people with dementia and their carers. In order to optimise quality of life for people with dementia it is vital that carers understand and value the philosophy of person-centred activities and how they can work with people with dementia to develop successful, individualised activity programs. By doing this, activities programs can enhance a sense of well-being incorporating physical, cognitive, emotional and spiritual health, promote self-esteem, provide pleasure and comfort, optimise independence and reduce behaviours of concern. This workshop will assist participants to develop their skills in the planning and delivery of fun and functional activities and will challenge them to take a new look at the situation of the person with dementia and to consider how they can do things differently with the same resources to achieve better outcomes.
This workshop assumes a basic knowledge of dementia in general and is suitable for managers, nurses, personal carers, diversional therapists, volunteers, psychologists, disability service workers, family carers and other people caring for people living with dementia.
