Event description

Description

There is increasing evidence to suggest that regular physical activity can help slow the progression of dementia and other related conditions. First Steps in Dementia is a one day course designed to help PAMS and Walk Leader volunteers understand how to support people with dementia to increase their levels of physical activity.

The course covers some background knowledge about the condition along with more practical skills and techniques to enable you to enable you to effectively engage those experiencing dementia in your activity opportunities. The session is both interesting and informal, it is led by Bob Laventure, a leading expert in the field of dementia and physical activity.

First Steps in Dementia is free of charge, but is only available to Kirklees Council Sport & Physical Activity Development Team volunteers (PAMS and Walk Leaders).
