Considering Transitioning to Residential Care

Our life journey is all about transitioning - we move from one experience to the next - life is not stagnant. Transitions also occur in the journey with dementia from diagnosis, through the caring role, working alongside others involved in the practical, social and emotional aspects of the journey. Transitions and periods of change are usually characterised by increased stress.

This workshop will provide information and strategies to support you through this process and include information on things to consider when choosing a residential facility. It will address your rights and those of the person with dementia in residential care.

The adjustments required for family carers and the person with dementia, (before, during and after the decision on placement), will be addressed in this workshop.
