Dementia Program for Carers – Session 3
$33.00 incl. GST (AU$)
This program is to assist PCWs – AINs by aligning their knowledge and skills with the updated 2013 skills and knowledge of person centred dementia care for RNs and ENs.
PCWs/AINs are likely to be responsible for most of the direct care of residents and clients with a dementia, and therefore more likely to be involved in reportable incidents of any description.
As part of the OH&S and risk management strategy of any aged care service, evidence of contemporary knowledge and practices by all care staff, of clients with a dementia, is a primary requirement. This is particularly so in relation to the management of ‘behaviours’.
Session 3 – memory & other losses – how to help
- memory loss and how to support the resident/client; the issues with showering and dressing; getting lost and refusing care and how care staff should respond
The program is delivered through our virtual classroom, with each session being recorded ‘archived’
Delivery suggestions for groups
- We recommend the program, where possible, is set up as group sessions, through your TV or data projector
- staff who cannot make the group sessions can have access to the recorded ‘archived’ sessions at times to suit
- each group should be facilitated by a RN, as ENs cannot not direct care to PCW/AINs
