Each Dementia Star award involves attending a 2-hour interactive and experiential training session, delivered by Enrichment for the Elderly. These bite-sized chunks allow delegates to learn at their own pace and make the sessions more able to be fit into a busy training calendar. The awards are designed to follow on to each other after each delegate has attended a dementia friends information session.
