Who is the Course Aimed at?
This course is for anyone of any age who is working or living in the community who wants to find out more about dementia and what they personally can do that will help.
Come along and find out more about dementia and how it impacts on peoples' lives. How do we get dementia? Can it be prevented? What do I do if I'm worried that I or someone I know has dementia? How can I make my business or service better for customers with dementia?
In the session, we'll look at these questions and more. We'll learn about how small changes to how we act and the environment can make a massive difference to the lives of people with dementia. Participants will be able to identify how they personally will be able to make a difference in their day to day lives and relationships.
By the end of the course participants will:
- be more aware of dementia and will understand dementia better
- have increased confidence about building relationships with people with dementia
- know what they personally can do that will make a difference in their personal, social and professional lives
- have found out about dementia friendly resources and initiatives in East Lothian
