Dementia Awareness Week 2022: Are you FITT for Frailty?

In this session, we will explore how small increases in exercise and improving balance can help you avoid becoming frail as you get older.

Description

Join the Alzheimer Scotland Centre for Policy and Practice Team for a free digital taster session to celebrate Dementia Awareness Week. 

Running from Monday 30th May until Sunday 5th June, this year's theme is 'Prevent, Care, Cure’

The aim of the week is to raise awareness of dementia and help improve the lives of people with dementia, their families and carers. 

In our 'Are You FITT for Frailty?' session, we will explore how small increases in exercise and improving balance can help you avoid becoming frail as you get older.  

This is a taster from our specialised learning opportunities, available to help you support older people with frailty and at risk of frailty to live the best life possible.   

This session will be led by Raymond Duffy, our programme leader for the MSc. in Gerontology (with Dementia Care) and Rhoda Macrae, Senior Lecturer in Dementia.

This session will take place live on Zoom and are expected to last around 1 hour, including time for discussion and questions. 

 

The sessions are free to attend, but advanced registration is required to secure your place. You will receive the Zoom link after completing registration for this event, and will receive a reminder email 1 day before the event. 

We look forward to seeing you!
