Would you or your organisation like to know more about creating inclusive outdoor experiences and sensory walks?
Research shows that connection to nature, and the outdoors, has significant well-being benefits for everyone, but especially for people living with dementia. It can improve sleep, concentration, appetite and communication skills. It can also help to slow the increase of symptoms and delay onset of the condition.
Our Sensory Walks & Outdoor Experiences training aims to build confidence and skills for staff and volunteers who support nature and outdoor experiences for people living with dementia and their caregivers.
We use a mixture of slide presentation, video clips (providing a perspective from people living with dementia), and facilitated Q & A time.
For face-to-face training, we also include practical exercises outdoors, access considerations at your venue, how to reach people in your community and next steps planning.
