Dementia Action Week 2022: Dementia Webinar – Avery
We’re here to tell you it’s not too late to sign-up for our free dementia webinar. As part of our campaign to raise awareness during Dementia Action Week, this insightful session, hosted by our expert and Head of Dementia Care, Jo Crossland, will cover topics such as:
– what dementia is and its different forms
– the facts, as well as the many myths wrongly associated with dementia
– ways in which the illness can impact people’s physical and mental health
– how person-centred dementia care can help those affected by it to live comfortably
We’re also giving the opportunity for viewers to put questions directly to Jo during a Q&A session at the end of the webinar, or contact her privately with those questions of a more sensitive nature.
