Workshops and structured conversations
These sessions are hosted at PLOT 22 for our team of project leads and partners to share their learning and skills.
Wednesday 24th July 10.30am - 12.30pm
In this informal two hour workshop, we will explore some of the ingredients that make for spending quality time with someone who is living with dementia. Whether you are supporting a friend or family member, or work with people who are living with dementia, by the end of the workshop you will have plenty of ideas for your own context. Every participant will take away a set of 'Ingredients' cards (included in the ticket cost).
The new 'Ingredients' cards have been designed and developed by Story Chaplain in collaboration with the talented illustrator Sarah Edmonds as a versatile resource to support and explore different aspects of spending quality time together with people living with dementia.
Also includes refreshments. Please read our People Care Guidelines below before booking.
10.00am - 1.00pm Monday 17 September 2018
For the past couple of years we have been running a monthly Dementia Inclusive Gardening (DIG) session for people living with dementia and their carers and companions. Feedback has been consistently positive, with participants telling us that they value spending time with one another, and being outdoors, both rain or shine.
We are keen to spread the word about using the outdoors to create dementia inclusive spaces and activities, and during this half day workshop we will share the story of DIG so far, as well as plenty of ideas that you can apply to your own context. We are also keen to hear from you, so we are hoping this will also be a time of sharing ideas and experiences.
We will round off the morning with some freshly harvested seasonal snacks and a brew round the fire.
