Dementia is caused by damage to brain cells by diseases such as Alzheimer's disease or stroke or even lifestyle choices such as smoking.
The Care Company has care specialists who are experts in looking after clients with dementia. Our caregivers can provide companionship, supervise recreational activities, assist with necessary daily living activities, and ensure a safe environment for your loved one. They are also experienced with managing behavioural changes and providing a consistent routine to reduce confusion and anxiety. Many also have advanced training with The Gentle Persuasive approach.
The Gentle Persuasive Approach
GPA is an innovative dementia care education curriculum based on a person-centred care approach, designed for interdisciplinary point of care staff across healthcare sectors. The session is evidence-based, interactive and practical. GPA Certified Coaches guide participants to fully understand responsive behaviours to respond effectively and appropriately in a workplace setting. GPA also includes respectful self-protective and gentle redirection techniques for use in situations of risk.
Unlike many dementia education programs, GPA is multidisciplinary and comprehensive in its delivery. It is evidence-based, incorporating collective, established evidence from the dementia context and AGE’s empirical evidence derived from our extensive evaluations of GPA within organizations. GPA Basics Education comprises four modules: An Introduction to Personhood, Brain and Behaviour, The Interpersonal Environment, and Gentle Persuasive Techniques for Respectful Self-Protection.
