Webinar

These sessions bring people together to find stillness and share our collective wisdom so that we can provide better person-centred care to our elders.

Why take part

In this third Pathways session looking at person-centred communications post-pandemic, we introduce One-Page Profiles, which are simple, versatile, and powerful tools for positive change for organizations constrained by time and budget.

Stillness

Following a short welcome, the session will start with a 10-minute Stillness block, where Dr. Gary Irwin-Kenyon will guide participants through simple relax-into-stillness movements that everyone can practice, and that you can easily incorporate into your daily lives— no matter how demanding your schedule.

One-Page Profiles

Originally developed by Helen Sanderson Associates in the UK, where they are used in education, social care, and elder care, a One-Page Profile is a profile of a person, which is positively focused on their core qualities.

They capture all the important information about a person on a single sheet of paper under three simple headings: what people appreciate about me, what’s important to me, and how best to support me.

One-Page Profiles are used in dementia care as a simple, versatile, and powerful person-centred tool to foster empathetic communication, relationship building, and matching between staff, volunteers, and elders.

In the second of two Pathways sessions on One-Pag Profiles we learn from guest speaker Jennifer Hermer of Helen Sanderson Associates Canada, who explains from personal and professional experience:

  1. The benefits of a One-Page Profile
  2. Embeding One-Page Profiles in Orgaization
