On Friday 16th June, three members of staff, Laura Brough, Communication and Development Office, Vince Gibbons, Joiner and Julie Neale, Contract Administrator attended a Dementia Friends training session in Carlisle.
The Dementia Friends short course helps to give an insight into Dementia, raising awareness of how we can all help change little things to create dementia friendly communities. The course highlights key characteristics and tackles presumptions about the disease. It also challenges those attending to put into action what they have learnt, whether it be telling a friend about it or changing something within the work place to ensure customers are able to access services without worry or confusion.
PPM Limited have committed to training key members staff over the next 12 month to become Dementia Friends, enabling us to raise awareness both internally and externally about Dementia and how we can adjust our working practices to create better experiences for those with the disease.
