Today we organized the first training and get-together for “Dementia Friendly Spots” trainers. In the future Dementia Friendly Spots will be opening in department stores, banks, post offices, police stations etc, which will help form a true Dementia Friendly Society.
Lecturers at today’s meeting included representatives of the Human Rights Ombudsman of the Republic of Slovenia, prof. dr. Zvezdan Pirtošek from the University Medical Center of Ljubljana and representatives from Spominčica. Dementia Friendly Spots are meant for people with dementia and their families, so they will have an easier way of finding help. This will help people with dementia to be able to stay at home longer.
