Early Stage Dementia Training Workshops - Evaluation Report

Dementia Awareness Training - group photo

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. 

To evaluate Age Scotland’s dementia aware training workshops (2015-2018), Impact Generation was appointed in May 2016 to conduct an evaluation for up to two years. Read more about the findings below.

“[Age Scotland’s session] makes you more aware of what you’re doing to yourself. Most of us have started walking more. I started walking out at lunchtime with these two [pointing at fellow participants].

“Those of us that went on the course have been able to have in-depth discussions about the difficult and sensitive issues that dementia raises – we would never have done that without going through the training”.

“I’ve been more compassionate to one of the residents in here.  I now accept that he’s not himself and it’s down to the dementia”
