Dementia is one of our most significant public health priorities, as it has far reaching effects on people who live with the condition, their carers, family, friends, communities, businesses, health, social care and voluntary services and the economy.
Please find attached information on Dementia Awareness – Dementia Friendly Communities training opportunities available from April 2016 to July 2016.
These FREE half day workshops are aimed at those working in front-line community, health and social care organisations, and businesses in Warwickshire who may come into contact with people living with dementia, or their carers, as part of their day to day service provision.
The workshops have been commissioned by Warwickshire County Council through Public Health and will contribute to raising awareness and understanding of dementia – which is a key element of Warwickshire’s Living Well with Dementia Strategy. Sessions will also contribute to enhancing the skills of frontline workers in Making Every Contact Count.
The attached flyer gives further details, and information about how to book a place.
