Dementia Awareness

Course Access: Lifetime
Course Overview

people in the UK are living with dementia, a number that is expected to rise to
1 million by 2021. We need society to support them to continue to live well.
This means organisations need to be taking steps to become more dementia
friendly, to support both colleagues and customers affected by dementia.

thirds of people with dementia still live in the community. We therefore need
both their own homes and the public buildings they continue to access to be
dementia friendly. However, 93% of homes lack even basic accessibility
features. Across
every part of the built environment sector, organisations can make a valuable
contribution to support people with dementia facing these challenges to
continue to live well in their own homes and community.

first step is to become a Dementia Friend, which this elearning module will
allow you to do. Dementia Friends is an Alzheimer’s Society programme changing
the way people think, act and talk about dementia. 

 By completing this elearning, you will become a Dementia
Friend and will be joining more than 3 million Dementia Friends in England and
