As part of the ongoing training a group CAREGivers attended and Dementia Awareness Programme this week. It was an ideal opportunity for them to learn more about an illness that they may come across whilst looking after our clients. 820,000 people throughout the UK are known to be suffering from this disease and this figure will more than double over the next 15 years.
The training helps our CAREGivers understand how the different forms of Dementia manifests itself and best practices for looking after people suffering from this disease. It was an ideal forum for them to share experiences and ways they have helped their clients and families.
If you know of someone who is suffering from Dementia or looking after someone with dementia who you feel needs some support, why not suggest they give us a call, we're here to help.
