Training course in Dementia – Mallow

The Speech Centre in MPHC Mallow is running an information and training evening for family members and carers of people with dementia on Monday 21st November at 7pm, in MPHC. What we are going to talk about is communicating with people suffering from dementia. The focus will be on practical ways to shape conversations so that people with dementia can take part, no matter what stage of dementia they are at.

Have you ever wanted to ask somebody questions like ‘If a person can’t remember the word for something, should you say it for them?’ or ‘If Dad believes that he’s 25 years old and heading out to work, should I correct him?’ or even ‘Mum doesn’t seem to know I’m even there, how can I talk to her when I visit her?’

55,000 people currently live with dementia in Ireland, affecting an estimated half a million families. The Speech Centre Speech and Language Therapy is supporting the Understand Together awareness campaign by running this evening event for anybody living or working with somebody with dementia.  All are welcome.

The meeting will be facilitated by Jennifer McCarthy B.Sc.SLT., MIASLT, and Ciara Bergin B.Sc.SLT., MIASLT, both Speech and Language Therapists. Admission is €8, and those interested should email training@thespeechcentre.com to say that you would like to come and reserve a place.
