Introduction to dementia and making the most of retained skills
This workshop will be of interest to those who are interested in dementia or those who are caring for an individual with a diagnosis. The basics of dementia and its impact will be covered as well as some strategies for making the most of retained skills for individuals with a diagnosis and those who care for them.
A previous participant commented: “Brilliant workshop, really helped me to get an understanding of how dementia effects the patient and families. Very helpful for me personally as I now understand more about my Grandfather's deteriorating health.”
The course will be delivered by Dr Maggie Ellis who leads the Dementia Friendly St Andrews campaign.
