Dementia specialist gives talks Many of us willingly take on the care of a relative with dementia but it can be exhausting and some- times frustrating work. Someone with demen- tia requires frequent reassurance and must be constantly monitored to stop them wandering off or injuring themselves when they are confused. It takes a lot of energy, time and commitment which can impact on the entire family. Kerikeri Retirement Village has a specialist dementia unit and has arranged training work- shops with international dementia specialist Jane Verity for healthcare professionals. She will also be the guest speaker at a sem- inar for relatives and friends of people with dementia at the retire- ment village social cen- tre on April 7 from 1pm to 4pm. The How To Care, How To Cope seminar is aimed at reducing frus- tration for caregivers. The seminar, free to village residents and their direct families, is open to the public with tickets costing $10. To book call 407-0070. On April 8, Ms Verity will run an eight-hour Spark Of Life seminar at Paihia aimed at full-time carers and healthcare professionals.
