We are delighted to be running a carer training session alongside a creative session for people with dementia at the Creative Matters Dementia event at Norwich Theatre Royal this May.
Super-successful from our point of view, very helpful and relevant to us. The staff were very positive and some good ideas have come from the training.
Practice Educator, Queen Mary's Hospital
This training helps carers think creatively about how they communicate with the person they care for, focusing on imaginative techniques for non-verbal communication in every day activities.
Techniques and tools are based on our creative performances Once Upon a Time and The Garden - each is tailored to participant’s mode of communication, physicality and engagement.
Facilitated by our Spare Tyre artists, the creative session for people with dementia will include music, movement and sensory interaction.
