How to improve our communication with people with dementia on a daily and meaningful level

 Type: Webinar
 Line of Knowledge: Planning and models of care
 Location: Online

The development of care approaches centred on people's wishes and autonomy entails the need for resources and strategies that promote it. At Matia and ACP Gerontology we wanted to contribute to the establishment of good practices applicable either in the home or in social and healthcare centres, with the publication of two new materials that are part of the project "Routes for the Advancement of Person-Centred Care". 

At this event, the route "Communicating with people with dementia" and the guide "Improving the well-being of people with dementia through our daily interactions" are presented. Two publications that seek to systematise the existing knowledge and experience in favouring communication that focuses on meeting the wishes and needs of people with dementia.

These documents, co-financed by the Department of Equality, Justice and Social Policies of the Basque Government, are the result of a collaborative process whose main objective has been to integrate the knowledge and experience provided by the professionals of Matia, with an expert vision, such as that of Teresa Martínez, Dr. in Health Sciences, gerontological psychologist and a reference in Person-Centred Care.

On 24 November at 18:00 PM (GMT+2), we would like to invite you to get to know this publication in detail. We will do so through a webinar, lasting one hour, in which its authors will review and share with all of us the most outstanding aspects of a route that calls for a change in the approach to care, where the self-determination of the person, their capacity to decide, their voice... becomes a key part of this knowledge and recognition of the person that we know is implied in good treatment.
