Work History

Locksmith is the ExtraCare title for 'Dementia Therapist, as a Locksmith I was referred residents from the care home who were experiencing dementia in such a way that it was adversely affecting their quality and enjoyment of life. I would talk with them and from the conversation's I would recommend how they could be helped within the care home environment. This would include the writing up of their biographies, producing memory books containing their cherished life history revealing photographs, these measures would enable myself and other members of staff to get to know the person and their personality, likes, dislikes, family and working history, their hobbies, beliefs etc. etc. I also organised and hosted dementia specific activities, weekly walking groups, reminiscence sessions, music therapy sessions, crossword sessions and memory drop in clinics.
