Behaviour that challenges us in Dementia Care
This session is facilitated by Mandy Haines. Mandy qualified as a mental health nurse in 1981, going to work with older people and those with dementia. In 2012 Mandy joined the Cognitive Disorders Service at the National Hospital for Neurology and Neurosurgery looking after those with young onset and rare dementias.
Mandy learnt extensively from talking to patients and carers in this role. It has given her great insight into the challenges of living with many types of dementia.
The learning outcomes of this session are:
- To understand how different types of dementia affect behaviour
- To understand what people with dementia are trying to communicate and the underlying causes/triggers
- Coping with changes in behaviour-approaches to consider.
