Dementia Immersive Experience Training Ulster University – Magee Campus
Mid December always brings one thing for the DEEDS team – training the first year Paramedic Course students in dementia awareness. We offer an immersive experience to the students so that they can come and walk in the shoes of someone living with dementia. This helps to build understanding and creates further empathy and this learning will support the students on their placements after Christmas where they may meet people living with dementia out in the community. Thank you to Andrew Chambers and Deirdre Harkin for all their support in helping us to organise the day. And also to the DEEDS volunteers: Marie, John and Rachel. We couldn’t do what we do without our amazing volunteers.
