Massaging People living with Dementia is an award winning course I developed to enable therapists, professionals, carers, friends & family to enable people to enjoy nurturing touch on their terms. The training defines the basics of dementia, communication approaches, basic touch & specialist massage techniques, permission & touch as well as how the law can enable you & your recipient. This is a fun & profound day which will increase your confidence & competence to communicate more holistically with people and give you more tools in your box of enabling.
All are welcome. I have taught nurses, physiotherapists, family members, friends, activity workers, dementia liason workers, carers, doctors, social workers, as well as a myriad of therapists all who wish to improve their communication & enabling skills.
When words fail, touch reaches the heart & core of a person.
