The word Dementia is used to describe reduced mental function due to a group of disorders, which cause progressive and irreversible loss of mental function. Dementia can affect adults of any age but it is more likely to occur in the elderly.
This session will include the most up to date research findings (i.e. benefits of family meals, music therapy, rocking chair benefits, bath and shower tips to overcome resistance, etc.).
We will explain the role environmental factors, carers knowledge, and staff attitudes play in dementia care.
