Early Stage Dementia Training Workshops - Evaluation Report
Age Scotland’s Dementia Awareness workshops are aimed at people and organisations who want to develop their understanding of early stage dementia. The workshops are interactive, covering a range of subjects and can be tailored to meet the needs of the group.
