Keeping dementia in mind: preventing falls by creating dementia-friendly homes

6 June 2023 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am

FREE

With a growing ageing population, it is predicted that the number of Australians with dementia will more than double by 2058. With older adults opting to live independently in their homes for longer, it’s important for health professionals to be aware of dementia-friendly environments for those who are at a higher risk of falls and therefore injury. Join Injury Matters, via the Stay On Your Feet® program, in this one-hour webinar with returning guest speaker Nick Seemann from Dementia Training Australia, and Liz Fuggle from Constructive Dialogues Architects, who will present key aspects to consider when advocating for dementia-friendly homes for older adults.

This webinar aims to:

  • Increased knowledge of environmental risk factors among older adults living with dementia.
  • Increased awareness of ways to support and assist clients with dementia in their homes.
  • Increased confidence in accessing relevant resources and referring older adults with dementia to appropriate services and health professionals.

Who should attend?

This webinar is suitable for Physiotherapists, Exercise Physiologists, Occupational Therapists, Social Workers, Aged care workers and carers.
