We all know how important a good night’s sleep is, and how dreadful you feel when you haven’t been sleeping well!
As part of our ongoing series on dementia support, we’ve developed a 10 minute course on supporting a person living with dementia, to sleep.
This is a Developing course on the Altura Learning Pathway. It’s perfect for all staff who work in residential care to further develop knowledge. It’s also useful for care staff who are expanding their fundamental knowledge and skills around a specific series.
Subject Matter Expert
This course features internationally renowned Dementia Specialist, Associate Professor Colm Cunningham from Hammond Care Dementia Centre, who joined us as our Subject Matter Expert.
We’ve also included a Learning Guide for this course. It provides some fundamental information for your staff to review before watching the video. It’s available with our learning resources.
This course provides some great tips such as evening/night staff dressing in pyjamas to provide a cue that it is time to prepare for bed and how to prepare a person’s room for optimal sleep.
