Life Story Work and Students

A collaboration between the School of Nursing and Midwifery and the Department of Communication Sciences at the University of Sheffield, has secured funding for a ‘Dementia Clinic’. This will bring people with dementia and family carers together with student nurses and student Speech and Language Therapists to undertake life story work.
The project aims to help students to develop communication skills and improved understanding of what it’s like to live with dementia.
A project worker has been appointed and we are excited about the work commencing in July 2015.
