Dementia Friends plus How to avoid being “scammed”
Our two workshops will be separated by a refreshment break. You are welcome to come to both. Otherwise join just one of them by slotting in or out at the refreshment break.
There are more than 850,000 people in the UK living with Dementia and unfortunately because public understanding is so poor, people with Dementia often feel – and are – misunderstood, marginalised and isolated.
By attending a Dementia awareness session and becoming a Dementia Friend you will find out more about how Dementia affects a person – and then, armed with this understanding be able to do small everyday things that help. So that collectively we can ensure that everyone living with Dementia feels part of, not apart from, society.
How to avoid being “scammed”
Do you think “it could happen to me – nobody can catch me out” ?
Think again ! From a knock at your door to social media and the internet – you are vulnerable ! This workshop will show you just how easy it is to be scammed.
Friends Against Scams aims to protect and prevent people from becoming victims of scams by empowering communities to “Take a Stand Against Scams” and learn about different types of scams and those likely to fall victim to them. People living with dementia are often in vulnerable circumstances and targeted by criminal scammers so the Friends Against Scams awareness session will outline the possible signs to help families and carers identify whether their loved ones are possibly being defrauded.
