About this event

Come along to find out more on Tuesday 7th December at Kingston University, Kingston Hill, 5.00 pm to 6.00 pm, room KUBS0026.

Are you interested in developing your knowledge and practice skills in supporting people and their families living with dementia? Would you like to become a dementia friend? This recognised awareness session from the Alzheimer’s Society improves your knowledge and understanding of how dementia can affect a person. You can even become a dementia champion and facilitate sessions for other students or in your workplace and for the wider public.

Would you like to find out more about volunteering opportunities in care homes, hospitals, library services, working with people living with dementia to develop your understanding and skills? Then this event is for you!

There are really exciting opportunities available to allow you to build your skills and knowledge in this rewarding area of practice. Volunteering opportunities will provide you with direct experience of supporting people living with dementia, allowing you to spend time with the person, to see them and look behind the diagnosis.

If you are interested in getting involved in these opportunities, you will be supported by myself and other members of the Kingston Dementia Friendly Community Group.

Please come along to the event for a mince pie, no obligation and to find out more!

Thank you, Maria Brent.
