A South Australian provider will host a series of workshops on how to enhance the lives of people living with dementia next month.

Helping Hand has secured leading dementia care experts, Jane Verity and Hilary Lee to conduct seminars on the Spark of Life philosophy.

The Spark of Life approach provides nurses and carers with a wide range of ideas and processes that draw on colour, art and memory.

“Our person-centred approach provides a deep insight into people with dementia that changes both perceptions and attitudes,” said Ms Verity.

“The approach also grows a culture of love, appreciation, enthusiasm and optimism that brings out everyone’s best, resulting in improved communication and enhanced job satisfaction for dementia care workers. This course will change the lives of people living with Dementia in South Australia and the people who work with them.” 

Helping Hand’s CEO, Ian Hardy said the organisation is seeking to provide progressive and interactive care.

“We want our residents and staff to enjoy each day through interesting and fun interactions,” said Helping Hand’s CEO, Ian Hardy.

The workshops in Mawson Lakes, North Adelaide and Ingle Farm are open to people from other organisations but places are limited.
