Get together with other Cocktails in Care Homes volunteers to chat and share tips about your experiences of being in the care homes. This will be an interactive session that will boost your skills and confidence in communicating with residents at the parties.
We’ll be joined by the wonderful Sally Knocker from Dementia Care Matters, who uses her background in theatre to help care homes think creatively about how to support people with dementia. Sally is passionate about more ‘being with’ and less ‘doing for’ people and is a fantastic source of inspiration for communicating with people living with dementia.
Is there anything you’ve found hard about being at the parties, or a particular scenario you weren’t sure how to deal with? Email Rosie at email@example.com and we can make sure we cover this in the evening.
Nibbles and wine will of course be provided!
