Understanding and dealing with Dementia
The Insurance Institute of Manchester is happy to announce that their next webinar will focus on the important topic of dementia.
Someone in the world develops dementia every three seconds. There are over 50 million people worldwide living with dementia in 2020. This number will almost double every 20 years, reaching 82 million in 2030 and 152 million in 2050.
Dementia affects so many people in different ways and this session is ideal for those on the front line dealing with customers, HR or anyone who has an involvement in dealing with vulnerable customers. It is ideal for those wanting to understand more about dementia and where people can go for extra support.
The following will be discussed:
- Spotting the signs of Dementia
- Communicating with people with dementia
- Dispelling myths
- Dementia risk factors and prevention
There will also be a Q&A with our speaker Nicki Nalton.
By attending this event delegates will be able to understand more about:
- Alzheimer’s / Dementia
- The challenges people living with and affected by dementia face
- Risk and prevention
- Ways in which you can support the Alzheimer’s Society
Our speaker Nicki Nalton, is a Community Fundraiser for Greater Manchester for Alzheimer’s Society, the UK’s leading dementia charity that campaigns for change, fund research to find a cure and support people living with dementia today. Alzheimer’s Society is facing dementia head-on, and Nicki will let attendees know more about their work during the session.
