Finding the Light in Dementia® Training.

Welcome and may I congratulate you on taking your first step to your Finding the Light in Dementia® Training

I feel very proud to have developed this training to help you care with your fellow human beings with the respect and dignity they and you deserve. 

Finding the Light in Dementia® is different from other dementia training programmes as people who have dementia and their loved ones have helped me create it over the years and offers a strong self-development ethos throughout. 

Finding the Light in Dementia® also recognises the need for us, as caregivers to care for ourselves and provides supportive and creative activities to help us develop personally and professionally and provides access to a wellbeing hub.

It is developed from over 30 years of dementia caregiving practice, my PhD research, teaching health and social care and personal development coaching.  Here, my links within academia have also ensured that this training offers the latest up to date evidence based practice, with leading professionals and researchers contributing to the platform.

The focus of Finding the Light in Dementia® is to develop a connection between the people we care with and their loved ones and ourselves as caregivers. 

By following Finding the Light in Dementia® we are going to learn about how our experiences can affect our thoughts, feelings and how we respond. By understanding ourselves more, we are in a better position to understand the people we care with  and develop resilience and emotional intelligence.

Finding the Light in Dementia® is a values-based training where we explore Dignity, Understanding, Empathy, Trust and cultural senstivity and find ways in which we can promote these values in our day-to-day care.

A large part of Finding the Light in Dementia® training is about you and your own personal development, which is interwoven within the training and through access to the wellbeing hub. 

By the end of the course, you will be more confident about understanding the world of the people you care with, how to connect with them, provide the best possible care for them, their loved ones and for yourself.
