Compassionate Communication

Compassionate care and communication are at the heart of excellent dementia care. Drawing on Re-Liveā€™s work in the UK and Japan, this practical course is aimed at professionals caring for people with dementia in their own home, a shared home or hospital setting. This course also supports artists and volunteers working with people with dementia.

The training will:

  • Explore the impact that compassionate communication can have for a person living with dementia
  • Support trainees to become aware of their own communication style 
  • Demonstrate the positive impact good body language, personal space and volume levels can have on a person with dementia 
  • Develop trainees confidence in connecting with a person with dementia, including the use of non-verbal communication
  • Encourage trainees to reflect on the situations they find challenging and explore how compassionate care and communication can help

Aimed at: Hospital staff, medical practitioners, care practitioners, artists, community workers, carers and volunteers

1 day course 
Maximum number of trainees ā€“ 20
