Is your business dementia-friendly? Contact us and schedule a staff training session. We offer on site education for your company/organization at no charge, although donations are gladly accepted!
Business education is usually implemented on site in 10-60 minutes, depending on the type of business, allowing for questions and time to discuss specific issues relevant to the business with the goals of:
- increasing awareness of the signs of dementia
- knowing concrete strategies to use in communicating effectively with people living with cognitive impairment
- identifying how to locate resources and assistance for themselves and individuals living with dementia
Businesses such as stores, banks, libraries, restaurants, faith communities, schools, hospitals, clinics, health clubs, government agencies, emergency services, and service organizations participating in the dementia awareness education, receive recognition and a window decal to display at the entrance to their facility with the international purple angel dementia-friendly symbol.
This symbol communicates the dementia-friendly status to customers. Ongoing education/resources will also be provided as needed to maintain this status.
