There are an estimated 850,000 people with dementia in the UK, which makes it a common condition that many of us come into contact with on a regular basis.
Our Dementia Awareness Course helps to provide you with more information about the condition, its many symptoms and best practice for supporting customers and third parties with dementia that may come into contact with your business.
Dementia is the coverall name for a set of symptoms which include memory loss, difficulty in thinking, with language or with problem solving.
They can be on a small or mild basis but usually someone living with these conditions will degenerate and they will become more severe. Dementia is usually caused when the brain is damaged by a disease such as Alzheimer’s or one of more strokes.
People with dementia symptoms could easily be your clients, customers or come into contact with your business in another way so it is essential you and your employees are fully versed in the best ways to support people living with dementia.
