Free online training session for SAIF Members on Dementia AwarenessOctober 24, 2017 // No Comments
Statistically one in three of us is likely to be affected by dementia, either because we or a family member develops it or we are closely associated with someone who is living with dementia. It is estimated that by 2020 a million people in the UK will be living with dementia. Ignorance is not bliss, and having an awareness of dementia may help you to obtain early medical support and provide care and support.
As professionals we come into close contact with families who are mourning the death of somebody who had dementia, assisting a main mourner with dementia or supporting staff who are dementia carers. Being known locally as a Dementia Friendly funeral business adds an extra benefit to your current and future clients.
Chris Parker is a Dementia Friends’ Champion trained by Alzheimer’s Society to deliver dementia awareness sessions, so SAIF Members may join this free online session to learn from Chris and ask her any questions you have. Book your places here.
