Event description

Description

This course is an interactive course, with stories, presentations, demonstrations, examples and discussions. This symposium aims to provide information about dementing illnesses to members of faith communities to help reduce misunderstandings and fear about dementia and to help them to support people with dementia to celebrate their spirituality as fully as possible and wherever possible (at church, at home, in nature, in care settings).

This course encourages participants to consider the dementia process to understand changing abilities and needs of people as they progress through all stages, as well as the sensory changes in old age and dementia, which can limit perception, comprehension, and participation.

Participants will examine worship for the spiritual care for older people, including people with dementia. The symposium will also examine adaptations for people in different stages, as well as spiritual connectedness of one-to-one or small groups.
