Workshop Aim: To develop knowledge and skills to enhance communication and inclusive ways of working with the older adult who may be suffering from dementia.

Intended Learning Outcomes:

  • In the context of working with people who have dementia, the practitioner will be able to utilise a range of strategies to enhance communication, for example, alternative signage or documentation optimising person-centred care and promoting inclusive ways of working.
  • Explain how a person may feel disempowered by communication processes in the care setting and how good communication can enhance a person’s experience of a care setting
