Support for creating changes, big or small
A dementia-friendly environment is enjoyable and meaningful, taking into account a person’s lifestyle, background and interests, as well as being familiar and recognisable.
We provide onsite education, training on the use of environmental assessments and support staff and leadership to recognise and plan meaningful environmental changes.
Training Needs Assessment (TNA)
Conduct a web-based survey of your staff, managers and optionally consumers, to identify the training needs at your organisation.
