Dementia awareness workshops (3 hours)

A 3 hour bespoke workshop for those in the community working with, or wanting to work with, carers and people with dementia.

Working together we construct a workshop that allows your team time to discuss how to work with people with dementia and their families and friends.

We set the objectives together, but an example would be:

Objectives:   

  • To deliver a half-day training workshop to volunteers/staff concerning community involvement of those living with dementia
  • To increase dementia awareness in the community
  • To help find ways to reduce loneliness and isolation of people living with dementia

Lisa came today to tell us more about dementia. I found it very interesting and really helped me to understand how my neighbour feels in his everyday life with dementia.

It was a really good topic, especially for me because I have some people who have dementia, so I know how to deal with them. Also, I know a lot of new information about dementia.
