Let’s Talk About Dementia
As dementia is on the increase so is the need for care, support and awareness
Our aim is to improve communication between people with dementia, professionals and non-professionals with the aid of different engagement methods and activities. In our experience just small changes to the care provided can be of great benefit to the person with dementia and their family members quality of life and wellbeing. How will we do this: We can design a training programme that suits you and/or your organisation’s needs or we can deliver our prepared training programmes and workshops. We provide one-to-one Carers/Family information sessions. Dementia Dialogue uses a creative approach to dementia care, meaning looking beyond solely providing task orientated care instead being person and relationship centred.

Our Training Programmes
Our aim is to get the voices of people with dementia and their family carers heard. We support and encourage care workers and service providers to engage in dialogue with each other and people with dementia. We believe in providing a person and relationship centred approach to dementia care and creating dementia inclusive environments.
Angelika has completed a practical toolkit for UK carers based on her research visit to Japan.
Why Japan? Japan has the highest proportion of people living beyond a hundred years of age. Consequently it is a society facing up to their needs for social stimulation and adapting to the loss of cognitive skills. Japan has much to teach the world.To download or obtain a copy of the toolkit click on the icon above.
We offer sessions which include: positive coping ideas, cognitive stimulation activities and how to create dementia inclusive environments. Clients include: Royal Borough of Greenwich, CCG Greenwich, Healthwatch, family Carers, Advocacy services, Wellcome Collection, Normal? Festival of the Brain.
