Dementia in the Workplace - Free Live Webinar - Jan 27, 2020

Stay up to date on the latest health and safety issues

As part of the Workplace Safety North (WSN) Feed Your Brain Lunch and Learn Webinar Series, you’re invited to attend a free virtual session, “Dementia in the Workplace,” on Wednesday, January 27, 2021 from 12:00 to 1:00 pm ET.
 
In Canada, there are more than 500,000 people living with dementia. As January is Alzheimer’s awareness month, this is an important health and safety topic, especially as older Canadians delay retirement or return to work after retirement.
 
You will learn from Jessica Bertuzzi, Public Relations and Education Manager, Alzheimer Society Sudbury, Manitoulin, North Bay and Districts. In this one-hour session, dementia and its impact in the workplace will be discussed.

Topics to be discussed:

  • What is dementia, signs and symptoms
  • Understanding dementia in the workplace
  • Breaking the stigma around dementia
  • Learn about a new awareness program for employers
The webinar is hosted by Angele Poitras, Community Engagement Specialist and Certified Psychological Health and Safety Advisor at Workplace Safety North.
 
Participants are encouraged to ask questions in the webinar Q&A box or pre-submit a question upon registering.
