At one of my regular Chair Chi sessions for an aged care centre here in Melbourne, Australia, I’ve been invited to run a session for a dementia unit.
I have worked with residents who have mild to severe dementia but this will be the first time I’ll be involved with a specific group.
So far I’ve run over 350 Chair Chi workshops for low care and high care residents, trained staff in how to run Chair Chi sessions in Melbourne, Bendigo, Adelaide, Sydney, Brisbane and am currently finalising a report on a Chair Chi Plus Pilot study I delivered at Berwick Craigcare Aged Care.
The more experiences I have, such as working with a dementia group, the more effective I can be in working with residents and staff.
And besides the experience, it’s also very enjoyable work.
