Dementia Action/Awareness Week May 16th – 22nd

Dementia Action Week is a national event that sees the UK public taking action to improve the lives of people affected by dementia. In 2022, the Week will take place on 16 – 22 May.

Stand up for your loved ones this Dementia Action Week

Coronavirus has exposed the fact that families facing dementia have been failed by a social care system that is inadequate, hard to access, costly and unfair. People with dementia have been worst hit by the pandemic, accounting for a quarter of all coronavirus deaths in the UK.

The time has come for governments to set right decades of unfairness and underinvestment and to build a social care system we can all be proud of.

This Dementia Action Week, Alzheimer’s Society needs your help to call on the Government to rebuild the social care system in 2022. Will you get involved and show you care?

34.5 million of us know someone living with dementia in the UK. Together we can bring about change.

One in three of us born in the UK today will go on to develop dementia in our lifetime, and there will be one million people living with dementia by 2025 making dementia care one of the greatest challenges facing our society. With few existing treatments, it’s social care not the NHS that people affected by dementia rely on. People with dementia represent the majority of social care users, so it is vital that the care system is made fit for purpose.

A new system we can be proud of

We need system that means every person living with dementia, and every carer, can get the support they need to stay happy, healthy and independent for as long as possible. This means quality care that is right for them, free and easy to get, no matter where you live – like the NHS.

The time has come to set right decades of unfairness and underinvestment and for Governments to create a legacy to be admired.

Alzheimer’s Society won’t stop until everyone can access the dementia care they so critically need, now and in the future.

Cyber Essential Certified 

We are pleased to announce that Ajuda Training has achieved Cyber Essentials Certification!

Cyber Essentials is a government backed scheme that helps Ajuda protect against a whole range of the most common cyber-attacks and demonstrates our commitment to cyber security.

This certification gives you our customer peace of mind and reassurance that our defences will protect against the vast majority of common cyber-attacks and online threats simply because these attacks are looking for targets which do not have the Cyber Essentials technical controls in place.

Cyber attacks come in many shapes and sizes, but the vast majority are very basic in nature, carried out by relatively unskilled individuals. They’re the digital equivalent of a thief trying your front door to see if it’s unlocked.

After being subject to rigorous checks it has been found that our defences will prevent these attacks.

New Year, New Me? Take it easy

Going into the new year is often associated with introducing meaningful changes in our lives to achieve great goals. This might be a great motivational tool for some people or may bring in some difficulties for others. Setting new goals and expectations for the new year is one thing, but the trend of comparing them between one another, thus introducing a concept of competition into it, cannot do much good in the long run.

How should you approach it then?

The most important resolution we suggest for this year is to TAKE IT EASY.

Small Steps = Achievable Goals

The best way to accomplish your new year’s resolutions is to set a few small but concrete, attainable goals alongside long-term aims. Don’t set too many goals, as they might overwhelm you at some point and make you feel discouraged.

  • Do more than just taking a hopeful approach.
  • Be specific.
  • Understand why a specific goal is essential to you.
  • Make a plan.
  • Create a checklist.

Let us help you with setting specific goals and achieving them!

Learning new skills can boost your confidence and help you build a sense of purpose, and raise your self-esteem. These can then be reflected into your relationships with other people. Increased belief in your abilities and worth, improve your satisfaction in life and often helps boosts your optimism. This can not only make you happier and healthier but also can contribute to you being more successful.

In order to support you and your mental wellbeing from the beginning of the 2022 journey, we have prepared a wide range of events you can participate in to learn a new skill. 

We offer both face-to-face and online courses to suit you all!

Our Online Training platform is the perfect way for you to keep learning from the comfort of your own home. We offer many courses to suit all learning needs, such as:

Emergency First Aid Annual Refresher

Paediatric First Aid

Basic Fire Safety Training

Food Safety Level 2 (Manufacturing, Catering & Retail)

MOVEMBER

Movember is a global campaign which quite simply asks you to pay attention to, talk about, raise funds for and most importantly raise awareness for men’s cancers and other men’s health issues.

It’s important to be aware of the different health issues men suffer with, whether it be physical health or mental health.

Did you know a lot of men won’t go to the doctors to get a problem checked as they are embarrassed and ashamed of their own body image? Stupid right? WRONG!

According to Healthline “Many men admit they put off going to the doctor as long as possible, sometimes even when they’re experiencing life-threatening symptoms.”

They also state:

“Nearly two-thirds of respondents said they avoid going to the doctor as long as possible, and 37 percent said they withhold information from their doctors.”

“Experts say this is an ongoing issue that keeps doctors from detecting life-threatening issues early, resulting in bigger health dangers and sometimes death.

There is no need to be ashamed about going to the doctors especially if you believe there is a serious problem at hand, do not let others ideals define you as person. This world is as much about unity as well as it is about individuality.

Movember has had nothing but a positive effect towards its goal. Last year (2020) £99.5 million was raised for Movember! This is a perfect example of how human humanity can be, joining together to raise that much money in a month. Now where does this money go? Ill let Movember tell you.

These donations allow us to raise awareness, invest in vital men's health initiatives and run Movember each year. Globally, we're tackling some of the biggest issues affecting men: mental health and suicide prevention, prostate cancer and testicular cancer
