Working with people living with dementia can be both rewarding and demanding. Time pressures and ever-increasing workloads massively impact on our abilities to connect and communicate with people, especially those living with dementia. The Empowered Conversation team can offer tailored flexible courses to suit your workplace, offering participants a chance to pause, reflect on how they communicate and explore different ways to connect.
‘It made me rethink the way I communicate with some of our residents and people I meet outside of work.’
Janice, Housing and Care 21.

I enjoyed the course and I learnt many things that will help me personally and in my professional career in theatre. It taught me better ways to speak with people without bombarding them with questions which is what we are taught to do when I do the job. I feel happier with my approaches now and that I contribute to my patients feeling happier and calmer while they are with us. – Chloe
