For staff and volunteers in public facing roles, having a basic understanding of the impact of dementia and how to support people can make a huge difference.
Dementia currently affects one in thirteen older people in Surrey and some 800,000 people across the UK. This is expected to increase by 25% by 2020 in Surrey alone.
Dementia Friendly Surrey can offer staff within your organisation, FREE basic dementia awareness training in a variety of ways to suit your needs. We can offer a self-study pack, a short three-hour course for ten or more people or you can book onto one of our upcoming cross-community courses which will enable participants to go back and cascade their learning to colleagues within their organisation.
