Preparing for an outing with the person you care for
This session will take a look at some of the challenges of going out in the community, both for the person with dementia and those who are caring for them.
We will explore the importance of going out for both the person living with dementia and their carer. Considering risk and ways of managing these when out and about in the community.
The session will look at ways of preparing and supporting someone to go out as well as thinking about resources and support that may help.
The session is for you if you would like to …
- gain some ideas for supporting the person and reduce your own fear or embarrassment of potential situations
- spend time with experienced health and care professionals who will answer your questions in a safe, supportive environment
- You would like to meet other people who are taking care of a friend or family member with dementia who may be in a similar situation
Spotlight sessions are all on zoom and last approximately 1.5 hours.
Carers express the importance of sharing ideas and information, and we know that an opportunity to do this makes the information given in the session far more meaningful. However, we also know some people do not want to participate in discussions and our practitioners are fully accepting of this. Some people are also unable to attend the full 90 minutes, in this instance, please call one of our team and we can talk this through with you.
Our courses for family carers are designed specifically for family and friends of people with dementia however we do understand that sometimes attending as a professional can be useful. It will enable you to recommend our courses to family and friends of people with dementia that you support, and to find out more about how carers feel about the issues that they face with different types of dementia. There is a cost associated with attending our courses as a professional, get in touch to find out more – 020 3096 7894 – firstname.lastname@example.org
