Workshop dates are: Thursdays 6th, 13th, 20th & 27th April 10am-1pm. These take place at the Strike a Light studio in Brighton.

More information:

Making a life history book can be an enjoyable and empowering activity for a person with dementia which may enable greater interaction and open up communication between someone with dementia and their carers, family and friends.

A life history book may be something that visitors can look through with a person, or it can be referred to by professionals to learn more about the person they are providing care for.

Uses:

* A distraction technique for refocusing during difficult symptoms
* A security tool when person is taken to unfamiliar places such as the hospital or care home
* Promotes well-being, validation and celebration of a person
* A bridge to the past
* Provides opportunities for pride and enhanced self-esteem
* Re-builds family relationships

The workshops will include:

* Using old photographs, photocopies, maps, collage, text, printable resources and more, we will work together over the course of four sessions to create a beautiful, bespoke booklet which will celebrate the life of your loved one, helping them to remember happy times, key events.

* Memory triggers to encourage remembering of family and friends

* Reminiscence tips and techniques to support life history work

A life story book can enrich relationships and promote understanding and respect as memories fade.

The course can only accomodate 8 participants to create a supportive atmosphere so please book early to avoid disappointment.

The cost is £100 (£80 concession) for the four week course from 10am-1pm each week. The course will include the work book, resources, planning, materials and refreshments, as well as interim support and suggestions if needed.
