DRW21: STATES OF DEMENTIA: SEEING THROUGH A GEMS© LENS
Appreciate the state a person is and respond appropriately. Know when things change. States are not stages (early, moderate, severe). People move in and out of different states, even in one day. Observe so you can respond well. Based on PAC GEMS(c) model.
DRW31: WHY DEMENTIA CARE IS DIFFERENT - CARING FOR CARERS
Dementia care is unlike other care - The day to day realities are underestimated and carers do not receive appropriate information or support to enable them to care well. Understand dementia’s unique demands enables carers to adapt and cope with endless frustrations.
DRW41: COMMON ISSUES A CARER WILL ENCOUNTER
This Workshop gives you skills and practice in identifying potential problems, ideas for approaching these, and strategies to help divert or de-escalate. Will be participant-led: raise and share issues you are facing. We will work through possible solutions.
DRW51: DEALING WITH ‘DIFFICULT BEHAVIOURS'
‘Challenging behaviours’ may be rational responses to people not knowing how to connect well or deal with aggravations - noise, confusion, fear, hunger, discomfort, thoughts they can’t communicate. Learn to observe and respond to defuse and calm agitation, confusion, aggression.
