For Dementia Awareness Week (#DAW16) the team from Newcastle University tell us a bit more about their course Dementia Care: Staying Connected and Living Well, and share a preview.
A recent study found that two-thirds of people living with dementia feel isolated. That’s why we’ve created a course designed to help people stay connected and to communicate well. In the first week of this course we explore dementia’s effect upon the person, on our personal relationships and on daily life.
Here’s a sneak preview of one of the videos featuring Dr Lynne Corner:
The course has been written with family carers in mind. In it we hear from carers and experts as we explore practical strategies that can improve communication. Our educator Lynne, draws on Newcastle University’s expertise in ageing and dementia research and together with colleagues shares knowledge on dementia, language and practical strategies that can improve communication.
