Held in conjuction with CIT skills for carers - a course over four weeks.
Communication books or 'life books' are living, creative documents that have proven to be useful tools for older people, people with disabilities, their families and carers. They provide current and vital information about a person's background, present situation and hopes for the future.
Life books are unique to each person. They may contain practical information about medical history, daily routines, food preferences and communication techniques and/or be more intensive and may include memorabilia and photos.
Life books may tell a life story, detailing memory, strengths, likes/dislikes, dreams and aspirations. This series of practical workshops will provide the time, resources and support for carers to create a life book for the person in their family who they support.
15 places only - so RSVP essential, please call 6255 0722. A healthy morning tea will be available at all sessions.
