FREE WEBINAR: Dementia Care under Covid – Lived Experience and Lessons Learned
In partnership with National Care Forum (NCF), we’re here to bring you a FREE webinar on ”Dementia Care under Covid – Lived Experience and Lessons Learned” on 26th May!
Date: 26th May 2021
Time: 14:00- 15:00
More about the webinar:
Our Dementia Care Champion, Jackie Pool will take you through Dementia and how the lived experience of both people with dementia and the people who support them changed under Covid, with a special focus on person-centred care – How we can help a person with dementia to achieve purpose, significance, fulfilment and satisfaction even when wearing full PPE.
We will look at the implications of Walking with purpose, and discuss the Alzheimer’s Society use of the phrase ‘Walking about’ and the nuanced differentials.
We will also outline:
- the challenges that have been overcome around all aspects of dementia care including IPC, testing and social distancing;
- consider how we have changed our approach to supporting people living with dementia;
- and how Covid has positively impacted that care and support.
You can now book your place for free here!
