Providing effective Activity Therapy for Alzheimer’s & Dementia clients in an enjoyable & cost effective programme
Activity Therapy Staff Training-Alzheimer’s/Dementia Thurles Thursday 7th June 2017
The Anner Hotel Dublin Rd Thurles
This is a staff training course for professionals in residential home elder care. The course teaches staff how to provide activity therapy for patients with Alzheimer’s and Dementia based on the successful ImaginationGYM methodology. Providing activity therapy can be quite a difficult task for many staff and the course will not only teach staff how to deliver effective activity therapy but will also provide evidence and case studies on our research in this area.
The course is approved as Category 1 Training with the Nurses and Midwifery Board with 10 credits for registered nurses that complete our training. The course is also suitable for Activity Therapists/Coordinators and other carers working with the elderly in residential care

This is a very cost effective way of delivering an activity program in your Nursing Home on a regular basis. After initial training and set up costs, annualised costs per capita for each workshop can be measured in cents. We recommend the programme is run at least once a week for clients as it has a progressively beneficial impact. Key outcomes included:
Reduction of stress
Increased engagement
Improved communication
Helpful behaviour management
A very enjoyable experience for both clients & staff
Stimulation of all senses
Group work
Cumulative positive effects over time.

The programme is successful because the workshops are run to a fixed methodology. The initial training is necessary to impart this methodology to staff. Training is held on 2 separate days approximately 6 weeks apart. The second training day is Wednesday 23rd August 2017. Ongoing telephone support is also available as part of the initial training commitment.
