The idea of careschool for people suffering from dementia is in the similar lines of regular day school that we have for kids,
Careschool will provide exactly same assitance to famliy members what regular schools provides for parents, parents are constantly worried about their kids even when they hire a babysitter, but once a child is left in a school suddenly that worry disappears, its because of psychological trust that they have developed for an institution called school and that trust was established beacuse of the environment that school created,at care school we are going to do exactly the same,our careschool will provide
a) structured timetable: -
Like regular schools , we will create a day planned out with structured activites for people suffering with dementia ,by nature all of us (kids to adults) are in search of some activity to keep ourselves engaged, but people suffering from dementia because of their condition cant do that , thus our careschool will do that for them, according to their stage and age we will have a planned out day routine in groups,which will constantly keep them engaged. the resaon behind having activites in group (like classroom) is to create a sense of belonging and also reassuring them that they are not the only one's suffering from dementia,they will feel more comfortable when they will be around with same set of people.
b) counselling :-
our care school will have counselling sessions for people suffering from dementia and also for their family members, sessions will be according to stages people are going through,the sessions will not just provide them support but will also prepare them for stages to come.
c) Daily Assignments: -
like we have assignments in regular school, our care school will give different joint assignment after school for family members and for people suffering, as this activity will keep them engaged and create bonding at home
d) Regular FMM (Family members meet) :-
Like PTA's we will have regular family member meets for different families to come together and discuss about their concerns
e) Managing expenses :-
Our care school will also help family care givers financially by buying the needed medication in bluk at cheaper rates, we will be able to do that because of number of people enrolled in our school
the above points are just the beginning we can add many more activites/facilites as we grow
