Dementia awareness training for professional carers

Dementia awareness training for health and social care professionals

House of Memories is a flagship dementia-awareness programme created by National Museums Liverpool. This  workshop is a half-day training session that uses powerful videos to tell the personal stories of people living with dementia, and provides skills and resources for health and social care staff to help people to live well with dementia.

During the session, people will learn about:
- How to use memory resources to communicate with people living with dementia – to support and encourage the sharing of their life stories, and to help see the person not the condition.
Memory activities and resources that are available from House of Memories – such as memory boxes, memory trees, and museum memory walks.
My House of Memories app – designed by and for people living with dementia and their carers, the app provides a free and easy way to do memory sharing at home, in residential care homes, or any setting.

Who is it for?
The workshop is aimed at staff working in the health, social care and housing sectors, who work regularly with people living with dementia. For family and volunteer carers, there is a separate workshop, dementia awareness for family and friends

Where?
The dementia awareness training sessions for health and social care professionals are held in the Museum of Liverpool. Directions and access information are available on the Museum of Liverpool website. There is a morning and afternoon workshop - you only need to attend one.
