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.

Bargaining and Equality
Bullying in a work environment can cause tremendous emotional distress as well as severely impact on people’s capacity to carry out their role. Employers have a duty of care to employees and there are a number of remedies you can pursue if you believe you are being bullied. For managers it is important to ensure that staff are enabled to work in a supportive environment which maximises their ability to contribute. Sometimes there is a blurred line between performance management and a belief by the staff member that they are being bullied. This course will explore the employer’s duty of care, what constitutes bullying, what remedies are available to someone who is experiencing it and how managers can respond pro-actively.
