Kinections Staying Connected Celebration – 8 December

8th December 2020 @ 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm

The Kinections Project will draw to a close on Dec 16th, the Kinections Team are hosting a final celebration event on Dec 8th 2-3.30pm on Zoom Webinar.

During the celebration they will both look back, at all that has taken place and emerged within Kinections of practical value to those living, working and connected to care homes, whilst also having an eye to the future to think about how connections can continue.

They will be sharing our Kinections Chronicle- which tells the story of the project, and will also hear from care home staff, collaborators, academics and researchers* about their Kinections experiences and perspectives.

Everyone is welcome.

The Staying Connected Celebration may be of particular interest to:

– all those connected with care homes

– people involved in dementia-friendly communities and the support of people living with dementia

– those with an interest in appreciative approaches to engagement and research including ethical considerations of research involving people with dementia.
