    When: 9.30am - 3.30pm, Friday 19 October 2018
    Where: The Ecology Centre, Kinghorn Loch, Kinghorn, KY3 9YG
    This event is being organised by Age Scotland
    This particular event is free to attend, so no payment is required.

    It is too late to book a place for this particular session, sorry about that.

    This session can boost your confidence and ability to work with and support older military veterans and older people affected by dementia. When older people attend your group or use your service, are you confident that you can:

    • Spot if someone shows early signs of dementia?
    • Offer appropriate support if they do have dementia?
    • Identify who belongs to the veterans' community?
    • Help them access extra support available to veterans and their families? No?

    Then this free training is for you. Please note that lunch and refreshments will be included. Where demand exceeds places for any individual event a cap of two places per organisation may be applied.

    8-16 participants per event. Follow-on options will be available: Dementia awareness 'training for trainers', Dementia and veterans' awareness badging in Age Scotland Community Connecting guides.
