November Webinar – 8th November 2017

Event Date: 8th November 2017

Dementia Awareness with Chris Parker FSAIF

Timing: 2-3pm on 8th November

Overview:

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.

Chris Parker is a Dementia Friends’ Champion trained by Alzheimer’s Society to deliver dementia awareness sessions, so join the session to learn from her and ask any questions you have.

Booking: The webinar is open to SAIF Members and is free of charge but you must register your place to receive the link to join the session. Book your place at Eventbrite here.
