Dementia Action Week 2022: Dementia Seminar – Avery
If you couldn’t attend our first online dementia seminar to mark Dementia Action Week 2022, don’t worry. There’s another chance for you to hear our Head of Dementia Care, Jo Crossland, provide a session she’s created to give people a better understanding of the illness, and how to provide support for someone who’s affected it.
By attending our informative webinar, you’ll be able to learn about:
– the basic facts and the misleading myths
– a form of care that positions the individual and their needs at the centre
– how dementia can affect physical and mental health
– how a person’s life story can help you form a connection when providing care
Jo will also be available to answer any questions you might have at the end of the session and is also happy to speak privately if you have sensitive questions.
When Does the Online Dementia Seminar Take Place?
You can join us on Thursday May 19 at 07:00 pm (BST).
