Making activity meaningful for people with dementia

Programme summary

Meaningful activity and having a purpose in life is a fundamental human need. People with dementia deserve every interaction, whether an activity of daily living or a leisure activity, to be meaningful and positive.

Participants will gain the knowledge and skills to develop a varied programme of activity in care settings which are person-centred and meaningful.

Who is this programme for

  • Support staff from care settings (including volunteers) who work directly with people with dementia and staff who are nominated activity co-ordinators
