Dementia is a huge and growing health crisis – and it should be on everyone’s mind. But it’s also a subject that many people don’t want to think or talk about. For many, it’s too frightening or misunderstood, and this stigma can surround dementia in silence. We know the reality of living with dementia can be difficult. Therefore enabling people to continue to live well with dementia is important.
Pam Kehoe a Consultant Admiral Nurse at Dementia UK will be joining us to tell us more about Admiral Nurses. Pam will also give a brief overview of the experience of dementia for both the person who has been diagnosed and their families with a focus on the impact that dementia may have on road users.
This webinar is ideal for highways, traffic and road safety engineers who are designing and maintaining the public realm and infrastructure that would be used by persons suffering from Dementia.
