Dementia Friends Information Sessions
News

Research commissioned by Alzheimer’s Research UK shows that the number of people over 60 living with dementia is projected to double over the next 25 years.

In this context, and as part of our ongoing work towards becoming a Dementia Friendly Business, we invited two speakers to our offices to deliver Dementia information sessions for members of our staff.

The sessions in Herne Bay and Canterbury were led by Alison Carter, Chair of our local Dementia Action Alliance, while the session in Ashford was taken by Alzheimer’s Society Ambassador Niki Young.

Alison and Niki spoke about how dementia affects a person and what we can do to help people affected by dementia in our community and in our workplace.

They also clearly relayed the five key messages of the Dementia Friends:

  • Dementia is not a natural part of ageing
  • Dementia is caused by brain diseases
  • It is not just about losing your memory
  • It is possible to live well with dementia
  • There is more to the person than the dementia

Those who attended reported that they found the sessions helpful and informative. There was a high level of interest and engagement throughout, and everyone left with a clearer understanding of the causes, symptoms, and possible responses to Dementia.

Aside from the benefits to our own personal and professional relationships, we hope that this new insight will make us better able to anticipate, understand and support our clients and the varied requirements they may have.
