Dementia Support Workshop
The Dementia Support Workshop consists of two elements:
Part 1 - The Alzheimer Information Series (AIS)
AIS offers a broad introduction to Alzheimer’s disease and related dementias. Topics include brain and behavior, communication, the environment, and recreation/activities. Also included is an opportunity to actively participate in a simulation of aging. Designed for healthcare providers (Nurses, Social Workers, PSW’s, etc.), and volunteers working with those affected by dementia.
Part 2 - U-First!
U-First is a proven and effective approach to working with people with dementia. Through dialogue and a case-based approach, learners will have more confidence in working with people with responsive behaviours. Designed for healthcare providers working in community care, acute care, and long-term care.
