Free memory-led dementia awareness training

House of Memories comes to York

The York Museums Trust are inviting health and social care professionals working regularly with people living with dementia, as well as friends and family, along to a free half-day House of Memories dementia awareness training session at Tempest Anderson Hall at The Yorkshire Museum on 29th and 30th November.

Using powerful videos the session explores the personal stories of people living with dementia, and the challenges faced by professionals caring and supporting them.

The Interactive session informs good professional practice and provides participants with practical skills and resources to effectively support people to live well with dementia.

At the session, learn about:

  • How to use memory resources to communicate with people living with dementia – to support and encourage the sharing of their life stories, and to help see the person not the condition.
  • Memory activities and resources that are available from House of Memories – such as memory boxes, memory trees, and museum memory walks.
  • National Museums Liverpool’s My House of Memories app – designed with and for people living with dementia, the app provides a free and easy way to do memory sharing at home, in residential care homes, or any setting. This has been done alongside York Museum Trust and other museums in York to provide local historic images.

This is part of a fully-funded partnership between York Museums Trust, City of York Council and National Museums Liverpool’s museum-led dementia awareness training programme called House of Memories.

The training, access to resources and museum-based activities enables carers to provide person-centred care for people living with dementia.

There is a session for friends and family of people with dementia and two available sessions for professionals at the end of November. Book your slot early.
