This video focuses on developing dementia care skills. Practical in nature, this title explores the ways in which care workers can adapt everyday routines and practices to support a person with dementia. It aims to: improve understanding of the communication difficulties that can be experienced, whilst also considering how feelings can be expressed through behaviour; develop good verbal and non-verbal communication skills in carers and encourage them to consider the factors that can further improve effectiveness; explore ways in which people with dementia can be engaged in activity to improve their quality of life whilst keeping them safe; encourage the use of person-centred skills to improve the quality of care given.
