SAIF becomes dementia friendly

December 4, 2014   //   No Comments

SAIF is delighted to announce its support for dementia awareness, with news of how SAIF members can exclusively become more Dementia Friendly.

We’ve teamed up with training2care, the UK’s licence holders of the Virtual Dementia Tour® – a hands-on, sensitivity training programme which gives people a greater understanding of the physical and mental challenges people with dementia face. The major benefit of the Virtual Dementia Tour® is that it gives you a window in the world of those suffering with dementia.  It truly is an unusual, emotional and very thought-provoking experience.

It’s impossible to know exactly what it feels like to have Alzheimer’s, but the Virtual Dementia Tour® brings people closer to what it is like to have dementia than any other system in existence.  Virtual Dementia Tour® is a wonderful opportunity to improve people’s understanding of this disease and make a significant difference to the levels of service organisations can provide.

SAIF members qualify for a discount on the Virtual Dementia Tour®.  For more information, read the SAIF Briefing Note: Dementia Briefing Note November 2014 or contact training2care.
