Love to Move Deliverers Course
Date 11th & 12th February 2020
House of Sport, Upper Malone Road, Belfast BT9 5LA
Love to Move is an age and dementia friendly seated movement programme unlike any other. The programme has its roots taken from gymnastics and uses specially designed coordination and bilaterally asymmetrical movement patterns, which are thought to have the effect of increasing a person’s cognitive reserve.
Research on the programme to date has identified that Love to Move can make a significant impact on the quality of life for older people; and in particular, those living with dementia appear to benefit the most.
In order to best support your needs pre and post course as well as on the course itself, we have a few questions to ask you as part of our enrolment process. It is important to us that learners have enough experience, either working with older people, people who are living with dementia, or general activity delivery experience, before embarking on delivering Love to Move independently. The 2-day course in itself may not be enough to build your confidence to deliver depending on your previous experience, knowledge and skills. We want you to become a great Love to Move deliverer and to support you as much as we can. This could take the form of mentoring post-course, or co-delivery.
