At our next Business Breakfast Briefing on Friday 24 November from 8.00 – 10am, Fiona Chalk, Senior Lecturer – Adult Nursing (Dementia and Frailty) at Bucks New University will be discussing the various options on how to make your business more dementia-friendly.
Dementia is one of the greatest challenges we face in society today. All businesses can contribute to tackling the social and economic impact of dementia. From retail to housing, utilities to entertainment, finance to transport, all sectors have a part to play.
Over 850,000 people are living with dementia and over 225,000 will develop dementia this year, that’s one every three minutes. In March 2012, the Prime Minister’s Challenge on Dementia was launched to make the UK the first dementia-friendly nation. Businesses and organisations play a critical role in helping to achieve this and Fiona will tailor this interactive session to your business requirements. You will discuss how your organisation can support both staff and customers affected by dementia and by making your business more dementia-friendly you will gain:
- Competitive advantage
- Increased revenue
- Improved customer service
- Enhanced brand reputation
- Future proofing
- Complying with the law
