‘Understanding Dementia’ Workshop

Is your loved one living with dementia?

Is their behaviour causing you anxiety and stress?

Would you like to know more?

Some support, advice and a few tips and tricks might help.

Home Instead runs a monthly workshop specifically aimed at loved ones.

During our workshops we cover topics including:

  • Why behaviour has changed – what is going on in the brain to cause:
    • Wandering and disturbed nights
    • Poor nutrition and hydration
    • Self-neglect
    • Lack of social graces
    • Aggression and emotions
    • Loneliness and isolation
  • How using the ‘right’ language can make a difference to how cooperative they will be
  • Knowing what type of dementia your loved one has as it can explain a lot
  • How to pick your battles
  • When to get help and where to go to get it

Workshops are held once a month at our Home Instead office in New Malden and are free to attend.

For more information on when our next workshop is running, please call Clare Jefferies on 020 8942 4137 or email clare.jefferies@homeinstead.co.uk.
