Dementia Awareness Training – Belfast Harbour Police and Lagan Search and Rescue
The training provided over 30 volunteers and staff with information on the symptoms of Dementia, to enable them to understand and communicate with people with the condition, and who may require assistance.
Highlighting the importance of the training, Brooke Garret (Head of Medical, LSAR) said:
“This training has been invaluable in raising awareness of the symptoms of Dementia, and in helping to equip our volunteers and BHP Officers with the skills to engage and communicate more effectively with people with the condition.”
“The training will support us as we work closely with BHP to enhance water safety for everyone in our community and provide support for people who are most vulnerable.”
