Learn skills to develop and embellish a Life Story Book while having some well deserved time out over a cuppa.
A Life Story Book is a tool used to enhance the care provided to older people, particularly those with Dementia. The benefits for individuals, families/friends and for staff providing care include improving understanding of the individual, promoting relationships and facilitating delivery of person-centred care. It is used to help develop an understanding of a person’s past experiences and how they will cope with changes in their life. The book includes: date and place of birth, parents, siblings, childhood, working life, significant life events, places & events, activities & interests & my life now. A great project to begin at early diagnosis to help cope with the decisions that may have to made in the future.
(Costs vary on number in the group & location. Can also be a one on one activity.)
“I found this workshop to be very therapeutic and I think it would be ideal to be used with the older people...the workshop showed how bits of paper can be turned into the most beautiful artwork and how you don’t have to be anyway artistic to produce something beautiful” Hilary, Community Physiatric Nurse.
