Dementia Activities Workshops

Sydney and Melbourne in November

Evidence-based Activity Interventions for People with Dementia

Following on from our popular “Fun and Functional Activities for People with Dementia” workshop program, this workshop will further explore evidence-based activities for people with dementia and how recent research in this area can be applied to the residential and community care environment. This workshop will offer an opportunity for participants to discuss what they are doing and the challenges that they face in the delivery of activities to people with dementia. Workshop participants will also have the opportunity to look at and try out some activities on iPads that can be used with some people with dementia.

This workshop assumes a working knowledge of dementia and is suitable for managers, nurses, personal carers, diversional therapists, volunteers, psychologists, disability service workers, family carers and other people caring for people living with dementia.
