2020 NEW COURSE:
A Peace of Mind Training Event:
Living with dementia is a huge challenge and great strides are being made in learning about it and about how we can best support those affected by it. Peace of Mind is offering a training event to help us learn about these things. It will be led by Hilary Woodhead. This is what she tells us about herself and about our training day:
Hilary Woodhead is a dementia specialist with 30 years experience in the health and social care sector. Hilary is the Executive Director of NAPA (National Activity Providers’ Association) and also provides consultancy and training in Brighton and Hove. Hilary has held a range of operational roles working directly with people with dementia and their families. She has worked across the sector to develop dementia services and is committed to supporting practitioners as they develop their knowledge and skills.
Our one day course will give pastoral workers the opportunity to learn about dementia and consider best practices approaches. By the end of the session, course participants will be able to describe the main types of dementia; understand something of the experience of living with dementia; recognise that each person living with dementia is unique and can experience well being; and begin to develop person-centred approaches and communication techniques.
