dementia speak

Do you live in Wrexham or work with people living in Wrexham? Would you like to understand how to better communicate with people living with dementia?

The dementia interpreter course is designed to help people understand how to communicate with people with dementia and to recognise that some behaviours are often a way of telling us something.


By understanding this behaviour, we can then reduce the frustration that losing the ability to talk can cause.

The course will delve into the impact of communication issues on an individual and on a group – not only from your perspective but from the person’s perspective as well. You will learn new techniques to help understand the simple changes you need to make to understand a person and you will gain skills to decipher behaviours and enable you to understand what someone is “saying”.

There are two sessions available per day at each venue: 10am – 1pm or 1.30pm – 4.30pm

This training is available specifically for people living in Wrexham or working with individuals living in Wrexham.
