Dementia Beyond Drugs - coming to Auckland and Christchurch, New Zealand in 2014

Dementia Beyond Drugs Workshops will be offered for the first time in New Zealand in Auckland and Christchurch in February 2014.  The 2 day experiential workshop facilitated by Dr G. Allen Power MD will bring together an eclectic mix of individuals from residential care, community care and dementia care to focus upon an alternative view on people living with dementia. 

Based on the award-winning book “Dementia Beyond Drugs”, this in-depth two-day learning experience from The Eden Alternative® uses the framework of culture change to create a new approach to caring for people who live with dementia.  In exploring 'what is dementia' and the biomedical model of care which dominates the current societal view of dementia care, Dr Al Power offers us a new alternative.

If we were to view the person with the disease of dementia as having a disability, would our view of capacity and capability also change from 'you can no longer do this for yourself' to one of assisting and enabling?

Using the seven Eden Alternative Domains of WellbeingTM, and focusing on determining the gaps that potentially exist for people living with dementia, our world view also changes.  Through these seven Domains of Wellbeing, we are able to identify what is meaningful for people living with dementia.  We SEE them, the person, rather than seeing the disease first, and then the person.
