Description

INTERNATIONAL BEST PRACTICE IN DEMENTIA CARE - Surry Hills, Sydney




Don’t miss this unique opportunity to find out the latest on the key international trends in dementia care – and how they can be applied locally – from some of the Australia’s most innovative thinkers and leaders in dementia care.

Our line-up of expert speakers have travelled to Europe and the US to experience first-hand the future trends in dementia – including dementia villages, the Butterfly Model and shared living – and are bringing that knowledge, combined with learnings from their own experiences, to this exclusive one-day seminar.

Speakers include:

Lucy O’Flaherty, CEO, Glenview Community Services

As Glenview prepares to open Australia’s first dementia village, Lucy is ideally placed to talk about the unique opportunities and challenges presented by this approach to dementia care, including her experience of De Hogeweyk dementia village in the Netherlands.

Sharon Callister, CEO, The Salvation Army Aged Care Plus

As head of The Salvation Army Aged Care Plus Sharon was responsible for rolling out the Butterfly Model of Care across multiple sites. Originally pioneered in the United Kingdom by Dementia Care Matters, the model aims to facilitate care guided by residents’ interests, feelings and emotions rather than tasks.

Tamar Krebs, Founder and CEO, Group Homes Australia

Tamar will present on her findings from her regular overseas trips, including to Humanitas in the Netherlands, where she observes and experiences the latest trends in dementia care.

....plus more to be announced.
