-“Dementia supporter training course” held at the store-
A dementia supporter is a person who has correct knowledge and understanding of dementia and helps people with dementia and their families in the community as much as possible. We are promoting the implementation and acquisition of disease supporter training courses. At Heiwado, we have been training dementia supporters since 2010, but with the aim of becoming a “community-based lifestyle comprehensive (creative) company” Based on this, we aim to have 10,000 employees, or about 40% of all employees, take this leave by the fiscal year ending February 28, 2024. Through the course, employees learn and put into practice correct knowledge about dementia and how to properly respond to people with dementia, thereby proposing a safe, secure, and comfortable shopping environment for customers and all other stakeholders. I will continue.
■ Dementia Supporter Training Course
In order to train “dementia supporters” who have the correct knowledge and understanding of dementia and who are supporters who watch over people with dementia and their families, “Caravan Mates” serve as instructors in regions and workplaces nationwide. This is a lecture to do. We aim to increase the number of dementia supporters as much as possible and create a town where everyone can live with peace of mind. ■ Dementia Supporter Caravan
The National Caravan Mate Liaison Council trains “Caravan Mates” who will act as instructors for dementia supporter training courses in collaboration with local governments such as prefectures and municipalities, as well as companies and organizations nationwide. Trained caravan mates will hold a “dementia supporter training course” in cooperation with the local government office.
