I work in an aged care facility and I see the miss use of antipsychotic drugs for treating dementia.

I work in dementia specific areas; one area is middle- late stage and the other specifically late stage.

I work as a diversional therapist and know that most of the behaviours are due to the persons needs not being met.

Most of the time its because of the lack of staff and the other is the staffs attitude towards the person with dementia.

I have recently become a trainer specifically because of the latter.

My work place has asked me to train in the area of dementia.

Good luck with your campaigns you will always have my full support!
