Distressed Behaviour in People with Dementia 

Created from the well established “Knowing Me Pro!” from together in dementia everyday (tide), this course focuses on People living with Dementia experiencing Distressed Behaviour. The resource is suitable for staff supporting those living in a care home, the community or in hospital.

When looking after someone with dementia, it is important to understand what that person might be telling you through their behaviours and non-verbal communication about what they want, need and feel. This level of understanding is vital for their happiness and well-being.

The course is co-delivered by paid professionals with long established careers in dementia services and carers of people living with dementia who have lived experience in dealing with and using strategies to prevent distressed behaviour in the person they care for. Throughout the course material, you will be able to draw on professional experience, speak with carers directly and will be provided with a resource pack of provisions to support you in your role.

Training Modules include:

  1. Terminology and Communication
  2. Cause of Distress
  3. Personalised Approaches
  4. Strategies and Practical Approaches

Life Story Work for People with Dementia 

Life Story Work is the process of eliciting and capturing people’s stories about what matters to them – in the past, present and the future. It enables us to see people as individuals in the context of their relationships, enabling their rights to be respected and valued.

It also promotes their personhood, their wellbeing and keeps them connected with family, friends and communities.

A person’s story is at the heart of who they are and how they have arrived at the here and now. Life Story Work is embedded in Human Rights and is the basis for moving into a relationship-based and person-centred care culture.

The course is co-delivered by paid professionals with long established careers in dementia services and carers of people living with dementia who have lived experience in using Life Story Work with the person they cared for. Throughout the course material you will be able to draw on professional experience, speak with carers directly and will be provided with a resource pack of provisions to support you in your role.

You will learn how Life Story Work can be a valuable tool in providing relationship based and person centred care and support.

Our Life Story Work training consists of three modules which include:

  1. An in-depth Introduction and Carer’s Story
  2. The Principles; Concerns, Consent, Confidentiality and the Outcomes
  3. Fundamentals and Ideas for Getting Started, Practical Tips and Techniques.

Why book tide training? 

 
At tide, we involve carers of people with dementia in everything we do. That's why we call our training "carer-led". We understand what people affected by dementia really need. Over the years, we have learned from the perspective of those who care for their loved ones every day. 

What attendees have to say...

"I thought it was brilliant and so helpful to hear from a carer's point of view."
