Day Two / 15th September 10:00
The first part of this session will be run by Steve Callaghan. It will identify the problems that people with dementia and their carers face when dealing with tradespeople and related organisations in their own home and describes a solution in the form of the CARE AWARE Toolkit™.
This approach is centred on education and training, processes and a code of conduct for trades to follow, providing people with dementia and carers a level of control and empowerment. Steve will outline the benefits of the CARE AWARE Toolkit™ for both people with dementia and the tradesperson.
The second part, Supporting apprenticeships to understand dementia and the environments in which they work, will be run by Steve Craig of UCATT.
