Dementia Awareness Seminar in Cardiff September 2011
Experiential training workshop - 'Experiencing Dementia'


Re-Live were invited to design and facilitate a series of workshops for the first ever Dementia Awareness seminar held in Cardiff and organised by Social Services Development and Training Department, Vale of Glamorgan Council. The experiential workshop for care staff and managers was designed to give participants an experience of what it could be like to be living with dementia.

Below is some feedback from participants.

"Amazing. Re-Live really opened our eyes and made us think about how people living with dementia can be affected by the smallest things within their living environment. It’ll make me think a lot more about the setting where I work and the experience us care staff provide to people." Participant

"A real eye opener. They (Re-Live) have a very unique and insightful approach to training care staff on this subject. The users of our service could benefit a lot from our staff being trained using Re-Live’s unique style of training." Participant

"I believe that the work Re-Live do is the way forward in dementia care training as they have the skills and experience to enable service providers to re-think the way the services are provided in order to achieve truly person centred care." Dan Morgan, Social Care Workforce Development Training Co-ordinator, Social Services Development and Training Vale of Glamorgan Council.
