House of Memories is National Museums Liverpool’s world-leading museum innovation for the dementia community.
The award-winning museum dementia awareness programme wants to make it easier to support people living with dementia this Christmas, with an easy-to-access online training course.
Aimed at professionals, the course provides skills to help deliver bespoke care to people living with dementia across the UK.
Through videos based on the real-life stories of people living with dementia, learning modules and quizzes, the course teaches practical skills to help provide person-centred care, and shows how to use museum memory resources such as the My House of Memories app.
The course also gives ideas on activities to support the person living with dementia to share their own life stories, with an overall focus on seeing and supporting the person, as well as the condition.
Carol Rogers, director of House of Memories at National Museums Liverpool, said: “Christmas can be a difficult time for people living with dementia and their carers. We want people to feel empowered to deliver the best care and support possible across the festive season.
“Our online training gives people access to practical skills and museum memory resources. Training can be accessed from the comfort of your home or work and completed in your own time.
“We’ll give you skills to put the person at the heart of their care. To see past the condition and focus on the individual. From there you’ll be able to create bespoke memory boxes and use our My House of Memories app to explore objects from the past and share memories together.”
House of Memories online dementia training is available at any time. The course costs £54, which includes access to videos, modules and resources and a certificate upon completion.
