For a person with dementia, personal care activities such as getting washed and dressed may become more difficult.
In this session we will explore some of the difficulties that may occur and the reasons for this.
We will link this with Tom Kitwood’s model of person-centred care, exploring each of the areas and how they may impact on a person’s experience of personal care activities.
We will explore strategies to overcome some of the difficulties, to enable someone to be as independent as possible and to enable the carer to support where needed.
We will be sharing ideas, resources and experiences with each other and having an opportunity to consider your needs as a family carer.
This session is for you if you would like to:
- explore the different needs an individual has in personal care activities
- consider strategies that will support positive personal care interactions
- spend time with experienced healthcare professionals who will answer your questions in a safe and supportive environment
- meet other people who are taking care of a friend or family member with dementia who maybe having similar experiences
