Dementia Awareness Training in the Community
This invitation is intended for people living or working in the Royal Borough - please help us spread the word by passing our details on to any appropriate parties should it not be of benefit to you.
Alzheimers Dementia Support (‘ADS’) is a local charity, operating in the Royal Borough of Windsor, Ascot & Maidenhead. Earlier this year, we were commissioned by the RBWM, to devise an informative and interactive training program, aimed at raising the awareness of Dementia for people living or working within our local community.
This 2 hour empowerment training session has been specifically developed to accommodate the awareness needs of all agencies, such as; commercial organisations, six form pupils, faith groups, retailers, (large and small – all sectors) and public agencies etc., and so attendees of our training will achieve an enhanced understanding of the condition, which will assist them in their daily work and life. Training course attendees will also be introduced to many of the issues people with dementia encounter and they will be encouraged to explore how best to manage many of the more common situations.Please contact us to register

Curious About Windsor
Have fun discovering Windsor with two self-guided, heritage walks with an optional treasure hunt. Find answers to clues and match pictures whilst reading stories about this famous town – resident or just visiting, you’re guaranteed to spot things you’ve never noticed before. The two walks can be enjoyed separately or joined together to form one longer walk – depending on available time and energy! Walks are suitable for all ages (detours to avoid steps are marked on the route map), and typically take 1-2 hours each to complete.
