This half-day course which was nominated for ‘Best Dementia Training’ at the Dementia Care Awards 2018 provides care staff, particularly activities staff, with the skills and confidence needed to implement a co-produced activity schedule across the home.   

The staff will learn how to use techniques the help them understand what all residents would like to do to do, including those who are nonverbal, living with sensory impairments or are living with advanced dementia. During the morning they will also begin to think about the processes they need to put in place across the whole home to make these wishes a reality.
