Culture in Ageing (CiA): Best Practice in Action: the 3 Rs of Ageing: Reminiscing, Reverting Responding
12 November 2019 @ 9:30 am - 4:00 pmFree
Join us … ‘Reminiscing with the cultural senses; hearing, sight, smell, touch, tastes, oral histories’
We all possess memories; we all have our own unique life history.
For the older person, it can increase:
Their ability to communicate
Feelings of self esteem
Feelings of belonging
Embrace each individual’s experiences and stories
Stimulate past interests and hobbies
Reminiscence can give meaning and validate each person’s life, their history and their experiences. IT INVOLVES EVERYONE!
Reminiscing can build and construct connections between people from different backgrounds and cultures with those that care for them. It can act as a bridge and a safety net simultaneously.
What happens when people with Dementia engage with Reminiscing activities?
A dynamic, activity based workshop implementing culturally inclusive lifestyle practices supported by a framework based both on the theory of reminiscence and cultural understandings and interpretations.
Culture in Ageing is designed to equip workers such as Lifestyle and Respite Coordinators, Community Care Workers, Activities Organisers in Residential Aged Care Facilities (RACF) and Community Care with practical knowledge, skills and ideas to meet the cultural and linguistic needs of care recipients by providing culturally inclusive strategies.
The workshop will also provide the opportunity to network with other workers and CALD community groups, gain access to resources and information and contribute to the development of targeted cultural briefings.
This full-day workshop will include sessions on reminiscing theory, the magic of memory lane, the art of narrative, fun and fact-filled activities. It will be action packed with many ideas, suggestions, strategies and practical activities that stimulate memories and stories and much, much more!
Refreshments and a light lunch will be provided
