Dementia Aware Workshops
We offer free dementia awareness workshops for Age Scotland’s members: older people's clubs and groups, and charities providing opportunities for and support to older people
Our workshops typically last 90 minutes. Given longer we can explore dementia in greater depth, including training sessions of up to two and a half hours. (If less time is available that's okay, but one hour is the minimum for a workshop to be worthwhile).
Dementia is a serious topic but that doesn't mean that learning about it can't be fun. In fact learning that's enjoyable is more likely to be remembered. That's why we've designed our workshops so that everyone can join in, and have fun.
A workshop leader, learning materials and equipment are provided. Groups requesting a workshop are expected to provide a suitable venue and any catering participants may require.
Age Scotland is committed to becoming a dementia aware charity: all our employees and volunteers undertake our awareness training.
