Resources to support the care of Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander people living with dementia workshop
Aboriginal people have unique experiences and beliefs that may be quite different to non Aboriginal Australians. To assist health professionals caring for Aboriginal people living with dementia, this workshop will give a brief overview of dementia in an Aboriginal context and showcase six resources that may be useful in practice.
The six resources have been developed with Federal Government funding and in consultation with appropriate Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Island representatives. Group activities using the resources are included as part of the workshop to demonstrate how they may be used in practice.
- A brief overview of dementia in the Aboriginal context
- Describe the features and use of tools and resources that promote health and wellbeing of Aboriginal people living with dementia
- Describe strategies to maximise the impact of the resources and tools to be discussed
