Sparks for today's dementia care
Care for older people is, more than ever, about care for people living with dementia. Care providers now embrace the need to “do it differently”, moving beyond biomedical to person-centered models. But what does “different” look like in practice?
We believe the solution lies in practical, high-impact approaches that make it possible for people with dementia and those who care about them to live well. The “SPARKS” in this six-hour interactive workshop take you on a journey of self-discovery and skill development, culminating in an operational plan for integration into your organisation.
  • Spark 1.The Dementia Live™ Experience. You will be immersed into life with dementia resulting in a deeper understanding of what it’s like to live with cognitive impairment and sensory change.
  • Spark 2. Compassionate Touch®. Discover the power of skilled touch to calm, comfort and connect, easing distress and strengthening care-partner relationships.
  • Spark 3. Flashback™. Discover how everyday items from the past ignite the senses, evoke memories and change relationships. This personalized approach reaches into the past to restore identity, dignity, purpose and joy of living!
  • Spark 4. Igniting Today’s Care. How to shape concepts into sustainable action. With guidance, you will develop an operational plan to assimilate tangible tools into real-life care practices.
