We are delighted to have welcomed the Dementia Friends to run a short course on what dementia is and how it affects people. The knowledge was valuable and it was brilliant opportunity to gain awareness. A few key points we learnt;
Living with Dementia
1. Agree, never argue.
2. Divert, never reason.
3. Distract, never shame.
4. Reassure, never lecture.
5. Reminisce, never say “remember”
6. Repeat, never say “I told you”.
7. Do what they can do, never say “you can’t”.
8. Ask, never demand.
9. Encourage, never condescend.
10. Reinforce, never force.
