Thurles Businesses Urged to Sign Up Staff for Dementia Awareness Workshops to Better Support Customers
The Source in Thurles is the venue for a number of free dementia awareness workshops for staff in the retail and financial services sectors being organised during February and March.
The workshops, which will be presented by Ursula Paine, CAMEO Care, and Jennifer Doyle, from the Community Hospital of the Assumption in Thurles, are part of the ongoing Dementia: Understand Together initiative to create better understanding and awareness about the condition.
Approximately 4,000 people, or an average of 11 people every day, develop dementia in Ireland each year. Indeed, there are over half a million people who have had a family member with dementia, yet research shows that many of us do not fully understand the condition.
The dementia awareness workshops are completely free with the workshops for the retail sector taking place in February on three consecutive Fridays – February 9, 16 and 23 from 2pm to 5pm –
and workshops for financial services staff taking place on three consecutive Fridays in March – March 2, 9 and 16 from 2pm to 5pm.
