Dementia Awareness for Sixth Form Students

Dementia Awareness for Sixth Form Students

On Friday 11th October, the Health and Social Care students completed a Dementia Awareness course that related to their current unit of study on the elderly. Students gained knowledge on how to look out for signs and symptoms of dementia and were given practical examples of what it is like to live with the illness so as they could empathise with patients. Many thanks to Mrs Valerie Guthrie and Mrs Lisa Hendley from the Alzheimer’s Society for coming to train us.
