Experiencing Dementia Workshop

Do you wonder how it feels; what it’s like to be that person?

Experiencing Dementia is a different concept in dementia education.

This workshop is built around simulation and personal experience, giving you a glimpse into what they may be experiencing.
Participants will:

  • Engage in a simulation reflecting what it’s like to have dementia, to better understand the difficulties faced, including visuo-spatial effects
  • Listen to a carer or person with dementia tell you about their experience
  • Consider how you can be more supportive towards people in your care
  • Identify the absolute importance of trust in relationships.
