DEMENTIA & COVID 19
Living with dementia and caring for someone who has dementia can be hard. The fear, isolation and loneliness that accompanies COVID19 can combine to make life more difficult.
This half day virtual course is designed to help participants understand how and why dementia can affect a person’s mental, physical, and emotional health.
Participants will learn how dementia results in different behaviours and that these behaviours are a means of communication.
The course highlights ways in which slights changes to environment and our behaviour/language can help a person with dementia to feel happier and safer.
