Dementia Education

Demystifying Dementia – educational sessions designed to support families living with dementia

GHA’s Demystifying Dementia educational sessions support people living with dementia and their families and friends. With afternoon and evening sessions available, join us as we share innovative strategies and tools to enhance quality of life beyond a diagnosis of dementia. 

 

During the sessions, we explore the concept of Rementia – a strengths-based approach using cognitive ramps to support someone to live their best life.


Sessions are provided on a complimentary basis and include afternoon tea or a light supper.

  • Human Needs – understanding each other’s basic human needs and how they can be impacted by dementia.
