Extra Sessions

Dementia Training will now be a regular event at Essence.

Living Well with Dementia - Dementia Awareness Training has new upcoming dates throughout the year for both 4 hours and 2x 2 hour sessions.

 If you are unable to attend due to your caring role, to help ease some anxieties we have special sessions where your loved ones will be supported by our Essence staff whilst you can attend the sessions in the adjacent training room.

Please contact the Essence Service if you would like more information or you would like to reserve your place.
