Dementia Carer Information Session (1 day) – Maclean

30 May 2017 @ 9:15 am - 2:30 pm

FREE

Event Navigation

Who is this for? This session is for any community member caring for a person with Dementia. This includes carers, family members, friends and neighbours but excludes workers providing Dementia care in a work capacity e.g. aged and disability care workers.

What will the session achieve? This information session will provide participants with a better understanding of Dementia and its impact, and offer techniques to improve communication between a person with Dementia and carers, family, friends and neighbours. The session also looks at barriers to accessing and using Dementia support services effectively and provides information and links to the support services available in the area.

Why should I participate? There are many benefits to participating in a Dementia Carer Information Session including:

  • Having the opportunity to meet with others in similar circumstances and feel less alone in your caring role and experiences.
  • Gaining a better understanding of why the changes are occuring in the person you are caring for.
  • Gaining strategies for dealing with the changes taking place including ways to maintain effective communication.
  • Learning how to take care of your own needs and where to go for support when you need it.

Who delivers this session? Judy Bartholomew is an educator/group work with Alzheimer’s Australia NSW and has delivered the Dementia Carer Information Sessions for over six years. Before this, Judy worked in the aged care sector for over 20 years, with a special interest in working with people living with Dementia.
