Relationship Based, Person Centred Care
Using the recognised evidence base this practical module gives participants the skills to develop a person centred approach, focusing on the relationships staff develop with the individual, family members and their colleagues.
Supporting Family Carers and Friends
Learning outcomes include how to engage with families and friends leading to better ‘wrap’ around support for families and the cared for person. The session will focus on understanding dementia, depression and delirium and the changes in behaviour that often signify an unmet need.
Purposeful Activity and Occupation
This session will enhance the skills of activities/therapies staff in assessing individual cognitive abilities of the person, matching their level of functioning with stimulating activity, occupation and purpose. The session demonstrates the beneficial impact on wellbeing of a variety of activities including music, physical activity, exercise and using the outdoors.
End of Life Care
The session, based on best practice, focuses on providing dignity and respect at the end of the person’s life, specifically when they have a diagnosis of dementia. It examines the concept of ‘Living Grief’ and how this can impact on family members.
Combined with dementia, depression and delirium, sensory loss can have a big impact on the individual. We will walk you through the five senses and analyse their impact. Participants will gain best practice tips and solutions when caring for people with sensory needs and look at falls-reduction, prevention of accidents and reduced hospital admissions.
Mental Capacity, Deprivation of Liberty Safeguards and Deprivation of Liberty (for those living in the community)
This session provides an in-depth consideration of the Mental Capacity Act (2005) enabling staff to complete decision and time specific capacity assessments. It includes information about the new Liberty Protection Safeguards due to replace Deprivation of Liberty Safeguards and Deprivation of Liberty in autumn 2020. The session will also enable professional care staff to have more confident conversations with individuals,families and other professionals.
