What is IGNITE?

IGNITE is a powerful 2.5 hour in-service training that will transform staff with practical tools to improve communications, respond to behavioral expression, relieve caregiver stress, and engage residents in meaningful activities.

The “SPARKS” utilized in this workshop take you on a journey of self-discovery and skill development, culminating in an operational plan for integration into your organization. Be prepared to be out of your seat and receive fresh, new ideas to engage your residents/individuals you work with! This training is non-stop and very engaging!

Spark 1:  Engage in a cutting edge hands-on experience of living with dementia, transforming care partners’ understanding and empathy for their residents. From this experience, staff will be empowered with effective tools to improve communications and care processes.

Spark 2: Understand the power of skilled touch as it relates to elder care; Practice skilled touch techniques that can be put into immediate practice in preventing behavioral expression, inducing relaxation and helping care partners relieve stress.

Spark 3: Discover how everyday items from the past ignite the senses, evoke memories and change relationships. This personalized approach reaches into the past to restore identity, dignity, purpose and joy of living!
