Home Instead community dementia training  

Home Instead CAREGivers have undergone this training which helps them to use a variety of proven techniques to help manage behaviours, encourage engagement and give seniors with Alzheimer’s Disease and other dementias the opportunity to live fulfilling lives.

We know that the vast majority of seniors want to remain at home as they age and we know that familiar surroundings are extremely important for those who have Alzheimer’s Disease or other dementias. Academic research commissioned by Home Instead Senior Care shows that paid in-home non-medical care can be an integral part of the care continuum for seniors with Alzheimer’s or other dementias who are being cared for by medical professionals. Home Instead Senior Care is changing the face of ageing by helping seniors to remain at home for as long as possible and with dignity. We also know from our research and work in homes throughout the world that families have two significant challenges when caring for their loved ones who have Alzheimer’s disease or other dementias; keeping their loved one’s mind engaged and managing behaviours that can include belligerence and aggression.

This free training includes tips and techniques information for helping families cope and also local training workshops. At the core of the training programme is our exclusive CAPTURING LIFE’S JOURNEY, LIFE JOURNAL. This is a special tool to help family members and carers record various aspects of the person’s life story. The stories and life experiences gathered from the ageing loved one’s past can be used to help carers immerse themselves in the lives of their clients to create meaningful activities, manage behaviours and provide care and support more effectively.

Our workshops will be held at The Leys Road Assisted Living Scheme, in the lounge. The full address is Gatecroft, Hemel Hempstead, HP3 9LY. The dates for the workshops are as follows:

Wednesday 23 September 10am-4.30pm
Wednesday 28 October 10am-4.30pm
Sunday 22 November 10am-4.30pm

There will be a 45 minute lunch break. Lunch is not provided, but refreshments will be available during the day and there is access to a local shopping centre very close by.
