Colette O'Driscoll, Namaste Care Manager - City & Hackney
 

Namaste is a Hindu term meaning ‘to honour the spirit within’. The Namaste Care Service honours people who can no longer tell us who they are or who they were or care for themselves without help.

St Joseph’s Hospice runs Namaste Services in Newham, Tower Hamlets and City & Hackney. We are holding a Masterclass to share our experience of setting up the service and the resources we developed.

This masterclass will give you a fantastic opportunity to get an insight into what we learnt and help you think about and set up a similar service in your own organisation.

Living with Dementia masterclass will give you an overview of Dementia as a whole. The Mental Capacity Act is designed to protect people who lack the mental capacity to make decisions for themselves. We will engage in Mental Capacity Assessments to gain knowledge about a person’s capability. We will also discuss the legal aspects of future care planning when dealing with patients who can no longer make decisions on their own. This information filled course has much more to offer from learning how to deal with challenging behaviour, to helpful ways to provide the highest quality of Namaste Care for those living with Dementia.  

Audience

Healthcare professionals providing palliative care and end of life care for people with dementia in any setting.
