My work with AGE-u-cate Training Institute Australia® – Training that Transforms Attitudes and Actions, is for a very personal reason. My father was diagnosed with dementia 4 years ago, news which was very distressing for our whole family. I felt the need to learn as much as possible about this disease which lead me to the AGE-u-cate Training Institute®.
Awareness is important, however when you are living with someone who has any type of Dementia, tools and strategies are also needed and that is why I became a Certified AGE-u-cate Master Trainer.
The following training programs are available for personal carers and professional carers.
The AGE-u-cate Dementia Live® (DL) program is a powerful real-life simulation of what it may be like to live with dementia. I would not have the understanding, awareness and now the tools available to me to support my dad on his journey without having taken this program. More significantly DL has strengthened my connection and interaction with my father.
The AGE-u-cate program Compassionate Touch® (CT) is the most beautiful, one on one touch massage that I have ever had the privilege to share with people especially the elderly. The crucial element of this technique is the intent to touch someone with compassionate presence.
Ageless Grace® (AG) is a fun, easy and organic brain and body exercise. Designed to stimulate the brain and strengthen the body, while listening to great music and enjoying the company of other people. Refer to my movement heading for more information on AG.
I am eager to share my skills, help raise your awareness and transform your relationship with those you love or care for.
