Ageing Population & Dementia

The Ageing Population & Dementia workshop offers:

  1. Need to Know. This is a group workshop on the facts behind the UKs ageing population with an emphasis on loneliness and dementia. The session then uses the Memory Bank pack of films and a scrapbook of photographs for students to explore tools that can be used with residents.

  2. Visit to a Residential Home. Given an insight and clarity on life in a residential home, the students will then use the tools in group sessions working with the residents.

  3. Wrap Up. Back at school, the students will process the experience and this may lead to them choosing to volunteer or, choose to apply to a residential home for their work experience project.
