Early Stage Dementia in Your Workplace
Around 90,000 people in Scotland live with dementia, a number expected to double in the next 25 years. As changes to retirement and state pension rules make working beyond age 65 common, more people will experience early symptoms of dementia while in employment.
Many workers are also unpaid carers for someone who has dementia and a growing number of customers who use your organisation’s products and services will be affected by dementia, directly or as a dementia carer.
Our workshops ensure your managers and your HR team are better informed and prepared to:
- Respond effectively should dementia become a ‘live’ workplace issue
- Minimise risks associated with dementia in the workplace, including legal compliance and safety.
- Foster a positive working culture in which staff with dementia, or who are caring for someone with dementia, feel supported by both their employer and co-workers
