MY DREAMS OF BEING: INCLUSION OF REALITY™
A true person centered training program by one of the world’s leading clinical dementia specialists: Dr Daniel J Nightingale (Dr Dan), PhD; RN; ADHP (NC); ECCH, Fellow of the Royal Society of Medicine
My Dreams of Being: Inclusion of Reality™, is a training and development program aimed at enhancing quality of life of people living with dementia (clinically referred to as a neurocognitive disorder).
The ultimate goal is to achieve rementia for each individual by shaping the attitudes and engagement of those supporting individuals living in their family home, in a memory care community or a nursing or residential home. Home is wherever that person is living.
“Dr Dan, you are a true inspiration– always have been and always will be. My staff were buzzing on the way home on all the things they want to do. Thank you. Never change who you are.” – Helen Randall, Home Manager
The program starts with the course leader and three volunteer learners acting out the scene “My journey Through Dementia”. The whole program is based around Daniel, a gentleman living in a nursing home.
Each module is interactive and engaging with the core being based on the Nightingale Model of Enriched Care and the Inclusion of Reality™ principle. At the end of each module there is practical homework, followed by feedback at the beginning of the next module. There is also a multiple choice test at the end of the course that learners must pass in order to be certified in My Dreams of Being: Inclusion of Reality™.
As part of the program, Dr. Dan will be available to support the course leader throughout the duration of the six week program. (His support of the course leader is available via Skype or email.)
Not only that, but for a period of twelve months after purchasing the program, Dr. Dan will be available for clinical consults by Skype or email. For example, if a member of the team is challenged by the behavior of a client, they may contact Dr. Dan for advice.
AND, you’ll be part of the exclusive Facebook group where you can interact with your fellow educators.
