Happy to host lunches for dementia supporting organisations plus we will make staff dementia aware for regular customers and their carers

Training. Preparing user-friendly (pictorial menus)
Dementia Awareness raising for staff
Ensure all staff attend a dementia awareness raising session
Review environment of premises
Identify possible issues for people living with dementia. Make changes which are feasible and ensure staff awareness of those which are not so they are able to help visitors within the premises.
Awareness that menu items may not make sense to people living with dementia.
being responsive to confusion and aiding customers in their choice - breaking down to more simple choices
Explore the option of hosting Dementia Friendly Activities
Pub lunches for people living with dementia and their carers, or Dementia Friendly evenings, possibly inviting local care homes to bring some residents in. Ideally in a closed off section for safety or on very quiet evenings.
