Dementia Tas

This is Helen.
😄
She is our new clinical nurse manager at Korongee and when she joined our team last month, she brought along her experience and passion for enabling people to live their best life.
Helen has worked as a registered nurse in a variety of roles in the healthcare sector, she has supported undergraduate nurses in clinical placements and currently coordinates a third year unit in the Bachelor of Dementia Care at the Wicking Dementia Centre titled dementia-friendly societies.
A big part of her role at Korongee will be enabling opportunities for people living with dementia to make decisions about the support that might work best for them.
“As the clinical manager, I will be pursuing authentic partnerships with residents and families to ensure their care needs are met and exceeded.
"To achieve this, I will partner with staff to support them to develop their expertise in dementia care provision and to understand the importance of ongoing development and partnership with others.”

It has been a great pleasure to meet our new Korongee team members this week. Our dementia consultant Ros will be delivering an intensive dementia training session to them over the next couple of days.
This will involve a series of workshops and interactive sessions aimed at honing their skills around working with people living with dementia in a small house setting.

Dementia Tas

Our dementia consultant is excited to offer training via live or pre-recorded video links.
The training session pictured here was on Understanding Korsakoff syndrome & ABI (Acquired Brain Injury) with Dementia, for clients in Ulverstone, Tasmania.

During the video, Ros talks about the conditions and the impact each has on the person living with dementia. Communication strategies and a person-centred approach to care is also covered off during the training.

The feedback received from participants was overwhelmingly positive.
Here is what one participant had to say:
"The pre-recorded training was easy to listen to and follow. It was clear, easy to follow information, delivered in a down to earth way."

The pre-recorded video can be watched and then participants can either email questions or we can set up a live video meeting after they have watched the training so they can ask questions.
