Through a variety of group discussions and practical activities your staff will learn what dementia is and why it’s relevant to the workplace. This includes how to communicate effectively with someone who has early stage dementia, understanding symptoms and risk factors and supporting employees to continue working when affected by dementia either directly or as a carer.

Key Outcome: Enables your organisation to respond positively and effectively to early stage dementia in a variety of workplace settings. Attendees will improve communication skills with customers and co-workers whilst HR teams will minimise the risks associated with dementia in the workplace, including legal compliance and safety.
