Welcome to this week

Welcome to Week 2.

First, we will revisit last week’s discussion about how life has changed for Peter now that he is in a nursing home, highlighting the differences.

One of the common challenges that carers of people with dementia identify is ensuring that those with dementia get enough to eat. Another challenge that carers often face is that of wandering. We will explore these difficulties, and identify possible responses that use a person-centred approach. Additionally, we will look at ‘dementia villages’ and discuss the concept of therapeutic lying.
