Dementia Action Week 2022: Free Dementia Guide – Avery

Dementia Action Week 2022 – Our Free Downloadable Dementia Guide

Across Dementia Action Week 2022, we’re going to be raising awareness of dementia – by providing useful information, running webinars for you to get involved in and showcasing the amazing work our team is doing to support people impacted by the illness.

We’re kicking it all off with the launch of our free downloadable dementia guide for carers and care providers – Caring for Someone with Dementia – as well as highlighting our ReConnect approach to dementia care.

This eight-page guide is full of information designed to help you understand the different types of dementia, the impact the illness can have on a loved one’s day-to-day life and the techniques you can use when caring for them.

At the back of our dementia brochure, we’ve included contact information for organisations that can provide more help and advice when it comes to those less common forms of dementia.

Highlighting Our ReConnect Approach

ReConnect is just one of the many services we provide to our residents who are affected by dementia. It’s designed to understand and address the unique requirements of each individual – as opposed to a ‘one-size-fits-all’ approach to care.

Developed by our Head of Dementia Care, Jo Crossland, ReConnect uses life story work, music therapy, picture boards and memory boxes to make that connection with individuals and understand who they are.

Want to learn more about ReConnect? Watch our video here to see Jo discuss it in more detail.

You can discover more about the life stories work we use within our ReConnect approach in this video.

What’s Next For Dementia Action Week 2022?

Day two (Tuesday May 17) of Dementia Action Week 2022 sees our Head of Dementia Care, Jo Crossland, present an insightful, and interactive dementia webinar at 11:00 am (BST).

It’s going to cover topics such as what dementia is and its different forms, the ways it can impact people’s physical and mental health, and how person-centred care can be effective.

Sign up for free to attend the webinar here.
