Supporting someone with Dementia? This is not to be missed!!
Alzheimers Nelson is delighted to introduce Janion Heywood who will be speaking at the Saxton Oval Pavilion on Wednesday 19 June, 2019 1.30pm-2.30pm.
A drug less system of caring for people with dementia which enables the person to live contentedly with a lifelong disability, rather than disintegrate with an ultimately fatal illness.
It is a programme designed to be used at home, and focuses as much on the primary carer and the family and community, as it does on the person with dementia, thus giving everyone new skills,
new coping strategies and the chance for contentment, rather than burnout.
It is simple, and requires some work, but is oh so rewarding!
This talk will introduce you to the Photograph Album and the Three Golden Rules.
The idea is you will understand what it is like to have dementia, and be able to let go of concepts of remembering and forgetting. See Janion’s biography on our attached poster.
