COURSE IN THE SPOTLIGHT - Dementia awareness
HOW AWARE ARE YOU AND / OUR YOUR EMPLOYEES OF DEMENTIA?
Leisure operators recognise their responsibility to make their services and facilities as accessible as possible for all members of the communities they serve. 
 
In the case of dementia, a non-physical and often hard to recognise condition, this begins with awareness amongst team members.
 
Steve Mann, Head of Healthy Communities at Places Leisure said, "As a social enterprise and community leisure operator we recognise our responsibility to make our facilities and services as accessible as possible for all members of our communities. In the case of dementia, a non-physical and often hard to recognise condition, this begins with awareness amongst team members."
 
"It is imperative that all of our leisure colleagues can recognise the signs that someone may be living with dementia, be able to communicate effectively with them, and understand how to provide an experience best suited to that individual.”
 
“This training has transformed the way Places Leisure operate, with the increased awareness enhancing our service and making the facilities that we manage on behalf of our local authority partners more accessible and enjoyable for people living with dementia as well as their carers".
