Dementia Interpreters Course
The challenges surrounding communication when supporting people with dementia is probably the first thing anyone who comes into direct or indirect contact with people who have dementia. Support staff and families must be taught how to adjust the way they communicate to a person with dementia to improve outcomes for all. The Dementia Interpreters course will be giving small taster sessions where we will take away your ability to speak, see, hear and move your body and force you to find new ways to communicate and recognise the changes that people need to make so that you can understand them.
