Our dementia care champions at Riversway Nursing Home recently took part in a training session organised by our dementia friends co-ordinators Jo and Sam.
The dementia friend’s session are to take place every month and will be accessible to our local community.
Jo and Sam highlight topics such as understanding and supporting a person with dementia, as well as the practical impact of dementia and the psychological and emotional impact of the condition.
There’s also important advice given out to carers, enabling them to look after themselves when they are supporting someone with dementia.
These dementia awareness sessions are vital and we will ensure that we receive the most up-to-date training and relevant news to enable us to share with our staff and local community.
