Dementia introductory talk

Free for a group of minimum 8 people. 1 session 1 hour.

One of the biggest challenges around Dementia is that we just don’t know enough about the disease. Dementia introductory talk is designed to keep you up-to-date with latest research about Dementia and help you understand the disease, know which questions to ask your GP and most important, know how to protect yourself.

Who should join: This talk is open to every person that would like to know, understand and learn how they might be able to control some of the aspects of Dementia. We believe that knowledge is power and our goal is to share it.

Goals:

  • We will learn about the known causes for Dementia and why this disease is so hard to diagnose.
  • We will discuss the three modifiable factors of Dementia: Biological, behavioural and social and their impact on individual’s ability to suppress Dementia.
  • We will explain why women are more affected by Dementia than men.
  • We will review research and discuss the ways the disease progresses and ways to manipulate its progression.
  • We will experiment with some of the tools we use at our programmes and discuss how those tools can help us maintain a healthy brain.

At the end of the workshop participants will be able to understand the disease and implement the information they have learned and use it for their day to day lives.
