Dementia Friends Workshop
Tue 14 February 2017, 14:00 – 15:00 GMT
As part of East Herts Council’s Forever Active project and Dementia Action Alliance initiative we have arranged a Dementia Friend workshop for sports instructors and volunteers on Tuesday, 14 February at 2pm at the council offices in Hertford, Pegs Lane SG13 8EQ.
The aim of the workshop – developed by the Alzheimer’s Society
Is to help create dementia-friendly communities where people living with dementia are understood and supported to stay active. The sessions have been designed so they are hugely appropriate for everyone both socially and professionally; for instructors , it is an opportunity to start to understand how you might help to make your activity more ‘dementia-friendly’. This will benefit coaches in sport as well, providing a better understanding of provisions for activities to asssist people with Dementia.
