Environments Introduction – Bethanie Fields
A series of zoom sessions with an Environments Facilitator, to help you identify opportunities for evidence based environmental changes to your site.
Learners will be guided through completion of the "Creating supportive environments for people living with dementia" online course.
A series of 3 Zoom sessions will be provided to expand on the material in each module of the online course, so that you can apply design principles and tools whilst having opportunity to engage with an Environmental Design Specialist. Each session will promote engagement via interactive activities and discussion.
How it will work:
1. Attend Introductory Session
2. Complete Module 1 " Why environments matter"
3. Attend Session 1
4. Complete Module 2 of "Exploring good places to live"
5. Attend Session 2
