Young Onset Dementia

Listen to Dr. Dan speak on Young Onset Dementia on the award-winning Lori LaBay show.

A true person centered training program by one of the world’s leading clinical dementia specialists: Dr Daniel J Nightingale (Dr Dan), PhD; RN; ADHP (NC); ECCH, Fellow of the Royal Society of Medicine.

My Dreams of Being: Supporting Someone Through Their Journey of Young Onset Dementia™, is a true person centered training and development program aimed at enhancing quality of life of people living with young onset dementia (clinically referred to as a neurocognitive disorder).

The ultimate goal is to achieve rementia for each individual by shaping the attitudes and engagement of those supporting individuals living in their family home, in a memory care community or a nursing or residential home. Home is wherever that person is living.

The program starts with a dramatic presentation of a real life story called ‘How Do I Get Home?’ (Narrated by the course leader). Module 2 follows the journey of Alan through video and group work.

There are 6 modules, each being interactive and engaging with the core being based on the Nightingale Model of Enriched Care and the Inclusion of Reality principle ™.
