Informed Dementia Care
My name is Mark Harrison. I have over 25 years experience working with people living with dementia. As a Dementia Specialist, I have worked in two of the UK’s largest care organisations. I cover the UK providing dementia seminars, training, consultancy and have spoken at many different dementia events including Oxford University Green Templeton’s College. I am a company award winner for implementing a Meaningful Engagement Programme. I wrote a dementia article called, Cues and Clues which was published in, The Care Home Catering Forum Magazine. I am a partner of Informed Dementia Care and I love delivering seminars and training. Recently I developed some Aging Simulation Suits used in our Experiential Dementia Champions training. I believe in an empathetic led practical approach to dementia training and feel it is more important to know about the person than to identify the lobes of the person''s brain.
Practical Dementia Training
Learning is a relatively permanent change in behaviour due to practice and experience. How can we maintain it after the trainer has gone?
