Let's Talk About Dementia - Free Online Training for Support Professionals (New Dates Added)

Let's Talk About Dementia, Free Online Training for Support Professionals

With the generous support of the Sir James Knott Trust, we are able to bring community and voluntary sector organisations across Gateshead and Newcastle this unique free online training. If you are supporting people facing dementia, or their families, this training will help.

Let's Talk About Dementia training is delivered in a virtual classroom format, over 2 sessions. 


If you’d like to be a bit more familiar with dementia and the early signs of the condition, you’d like to be clear on the facts rather than the myths, and know what support is available in the local area for people and their families who are facing the condition, this session is an ideal introduction.


Designed and delivered by expert advisers in this field, Part 2 builds on session 1 (please note you will need to attend Part 1 before attending this more specialist session). Course content has been designed to help social welfare professionals, advisers and staff and volunteers working in support organisations to address the needs of families living with, or caring for someone with dementia.  We will explore the advice needs of families, available welfare benefits and how to access them, and the ways that carers can manage the affairs of someone living with dementia appropriately, and with dignity.
