Meaningful interaction and engagement for people with dementia

Our  Meaningful Interaction and Engagement in Dementia Course looks at how we can provide meaningful interaction and positive engagement for people living with dementia, through all stages.

We understand that some skills may deteriorate during dementia, but our focus is this: we want to look at the skills the person has retained, rather than what they haven’t. We incorporate this into person-centred planning and adapt the persons activities/engagements to suit their abilities and skills, through all stages of dementia. We can help adapt activities to suit the persons needs and help learners to understand the importance of promoting positive engagement and wellbeing.

What does Meaningful Interaction and Engagement in Dementia Course cover?

  • What is the quality of interactions a person is being provided with?
  • The importance of person-centred care and meaningful engagements. 
  • The importance of a person’s background when planning an activity
  • What could be barriers to meaningful interaction and how to overcome them. 
  • Positive risk taking and how this could be beneficial to the person you are supporting.
