Dementia: developing person centred approaches to moving and handling

24 Nov 2021
Theatre 3
M&H / Mental Health

This talk will consider reasons a person  may display behavioural and psychological symptoms of dementia including sensory changes. We'll look at ways to help us understand what a person living with dementia may be trying to communicate . We will then explore approaches to moving and handling during therapy and personal care tasks to ensure  input is person centred and dignified, finally we'll look at how we are striving for excellence in dementia care at East Cheshire Trust. 

Speakers
Samantha Evans, Advanced Clinical Specialist Occupational Therapist / Associate Trainer - East Cheshire NHS Trust / A1 Risk Solutions
