AGE SCOTLAND Early Stage Dementia Project:  93,000 people in Scotland have dementia, a number expected to rise steeply over coming years.  Dementia is a serious topic, but that doesn't mean that learning about it can't be fun.  In fact learning, that's enjoyable, is more likely to be remembered.  That's why Age Scotland has designed workshops so that everyone can join in and have fun.  Free dementia awareness workshops for Age Scotland Member Groups, of which OiR Ayr is one.  The workshops cover:

  • Dementia - what it is, its early signs and symptoms
  • How to communicate with and include someone who has early stage dementia
  • How to reduce the risk of getting dementia
Short workshop (60-90 minutes) Ideal for speaker slots at group meetings - up to 32 participants.

Long workshop (2½ hours) Ideal for volunteers in more formal roles and staff members - up to 16 participants.
