Dementia Awareness and Inclusion Training

We offer free dementia awareness and inclusion training for Age Scotland members, older people’s clubs and groups, charities and community groups.

Our training sessions can last anything from 1 – 3 hours and cover a diversity of topics relevant to understanding dementia and being inclusive of people living with dementia, including:

  • What is dementia?
  • Understanding the brain and the signs and symptoms of dementia
  • Diagnosis and support
  • Communication
  • Inclusion and stigma
  • Prevention and living well with dementia
  • Wellbeing and mood
  • Creating enabling environments

Our training is for groups of 8 – 16 people and can be tailored to your requirements. At present all of our sessions are delivered online, but when face-to-face activities can resume in the future, we will offer both online and in-person sessions.

Additionally, we offer activity-specific inclusion training for befriending, community sports and Scottish country dance groups, so if this is of interest to you, please get in touch with the training team to find out more.

Alongside our bespoke training offer, we have a programme of scheduled courses on all topics for interested individuals to sign up to free of charge. Please see our training calendar for all scheduled courses.

Please get in touch with the dementia training team at dementiatraining@agescotland.org.uk if you have any questions or would like to book a training session.
