Dementia Awareness Training
We offer free dementia awareness 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
- Inclusion and stigma
- Prevention and living well with dementia
- Wellbeing and mood
- Creating enabling environments
Our training is for groups of 8 – 16 people. 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
Please see our training calendar for all scheduled courses.
Additionally, we can run a session for your organisation which is tailored to your requirements.
Please get in touch with the dementia training team at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions or would like to book a training session.
