Activity example: “Dementia Cafe”
The Qol Group is working to train dementia supporters. With correct understanding of dementia, pharmacists and other staff at Qol Pharmacies play a role of supporters who warmly watch over people with dementia and their families, participating in the creation of communities where people can live with at ease. Qol pharmacies in different areas host cafe events, which can be casually used by local residents including those with dementia, their families, and people having concern on dementia, as well as medical professionals. We believe communication at the cafe can help prevent the disease and alleviate the development of conditions.
