Family Dementia Workshop in Nenagh

Home Instead Senior Care provide information and advice to families to assist planning and decision making. As part of this educational programme a family dementia workshop will be held in Nenagh on Wednesday 25th June at the Abbey Court Hotel, 19:00 to 22:00.

Research from the Home Instead Senior Care network reveals that families have two significant challenges when caring for their loved ones who have memory loss or dementia such as Alzheimer’s Disease. These are keeping their loved one’s positively engaged and managing behaviours that can include repetition and agitation. The CARE training programme encourages a subtle change in how you communicate. This will assist with resolving awkward situations and help ensure the safety of the person with dementia. This will enable the person with dementia to remain in familiar surroundings for as long as possible.

Recently Home Instead trainers delivered the course to health care professionals at Nenagh General Hospital and this will be repeated in July.

We would like to invite you to refer carers of people with dementia to our family dementia workshop on 25th June. For more information and registration see http://www.homeinstead.ie/Alzheimers-Dementia-care/dementia-educational-workshops or call our office on 0504 91100.
