Event description
Do you want to understand more about how dementia can affect people? Would you like to know how you can better support people with dementia?

About this Event

Please note: this session is for Blackburn with Darwen (UK) residents only. This course may be subject to change if any local restrictions relating to Covid-19 are in place.

This term we are increasing our offer for people with dementia and their carers as we understand how isolating things have been in recent times with most support services unable to visit and facilities remaining closed. We are also aware that being isolated for so long reduces the levels of mental stimulation for people with memory difficulties, which can lead to decline. We have devised a set of courses that increase awareness of dementia and sessions where people with dementia can train their brain.

Our Dementia Awareness sessions give you the opportunity to learn more about dementia and the small ways you can help support people with dementia. We will also explore the changes dementia makes to how people understand the world around them and how we can use this awareness to help make the world less daunting for people with dementia.
