"A great free service, giving a real insight into dementia."

Alzheimers Dementia Support

This event is for people living or working in the Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead.

What is it?:

Alzheimers Dementia Support(‘ADS’) is a local charity, operating in the Royal Borough of Windsor, Ascot & Maidenhead. Earlier this year, we were commissioned by the RBWM, to devise an informative and interactive training program, aimed at raising the awareness of Dementia within our local community. In addition, our training program has been designed to demonstrate how seriously the disease affects the lives of the many people it touches.
As a result of our collaboration with the RBWM, ‘ADS’ Dementia Awareness Training in the Community will be delivered to all attendees as a ‘free of charge’ two-hour session and all organisations, operating in the RBWM, have the opportunity to nominate multiple numbers of delegate attendees.

Availability at each session will be strictly limited and therefore an early booking is strongly recommended, to ensure that you and/or your nominated attendees are not disappointed. Please Note: If our currently arranged training dates are not suitable, please let us know and we will make all efforts to ensure that you are informed when additional dates are added to our calendar

Course Content:

  • Introductions and any experience of dementia
  • Facts & figures about dementia

The course is complemented by a pack containing various information sheets covering discussions from the day together with our latest newsletter.

Who can Attend?:

Anyone living or working in the Royal Borough if Windsor & Maidenhead. Our training has been specifically developed to accommodate the awareness needs of all individuals and agencies, such as; commercial organisations, six form pupils, faith groups, retailers, (large and small – all sectors) and public agencies etc., and so attendees of our training will achieve an enhanced understanding of the condition, which will assist them in their daily work and life. Training course attendees will also be introduced to many of the issues people with dementia encounter and they will be encouraged to explore how best to manage many of the more common situations.

Booking more than 1 person:

You can bulk book 1 to 25 people to a public event. We can also bring the training to you and arrange Private training at your facility for large numbers (12+) of delegates on request - this can be either 1 or 2 hour time slots, tailored to suit your availability, and is also free of charge.

Follow Up Training:

Following completion of our training, some attendees may be considered eligible to, at a later date, join a “Train the Trainer” session, as in so doing these individuals will be empowered to share the important lessons they have learned, with colleagues within the greater structure of their own organisation and/or environment.

Conditions:
As previously mentioned, ‘ADS’ - Dementia Awareness Training in the Community, is offered on a ‘free of charge’ basis, however, should any booked attendees (to any session) fail to attend, it should be noted that non-attendance will attract a per delegate charge of £75 (invoiced) unless 72 hours/3 working days notice is given. We do understand that things happen beyond our control and this fee will be waivered on only one occation when registering and attending on an alternative date.

Testimonials

"A great free service, giving a real insight into dementia. Hopefully even if just a little information can be taken away by all that attend it will help in society." Legal Exec

“I was at a presentation last night at Berks Search & Rescue given by 'ADS'. It was the best talk I've seen in years and certainly helps us understanding the condition more. Thanks very much” Mel BLSAR
