Dementia Friendly Ambassador: Community and Service Based Organizations

September 29, 2021 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm ADT

Through the help of the Nova Scotia Age Friendly Communities Program, Person Centred Universe, in partnership with The Halifax Chamber of Commerce we are proud to announce the second installment of the Dementia Friendly Business Ambassador program. This was made possible through the participation and feedback of businesses and ambassadors in the Halifax area with our pilot project. We have now been able to take that information and have created three streamlined half-day courses to better suit the needs of organizations looking to better serve individuals who are living with dementia.

Participants will have an opportunity to choose between our three streams: Dementia Friendly Ambassador: Community and Service Based Organizations, Dementia Friendly Ambassador: Hospitality, and Dementia Friendly Ambassador: Retail; to choose the offering that best suits their organizational needs. If applicable, participants are welcome to participate in any or all streams if they so choose.

In these half-day sessions, ambassadors will have the opportunity to explore topics such as: providing dementia-friendly service, creating supportive environments and atmospheres, and general knowledge on dementia and best practices for their sector; which build off of the fundamentals acquired within the pilot program. The interactive nature of these online sessions will allow participants to learn and grow with other members of their field of business through sector-specific examples and information.
