Productive Activities in Dementia Care

The Productive Activities in Dementia Care is a one day training course suitable for nurses, carers and support workers.

Introduction

This highly popular and fully unique course, which was devised as a result of conversations between an EMI Nursing Home Manager (RMN) and our Training and Development Manager, focuses on effective, time-managed activities to stimulate reminiscence and outstanding support for people living with dementia.
