This event is for people living or working in the Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead. What is it?: Alzheimers Dementia Support (‘ ADS ’) is a local charity, operating in the Royal Borough of Windsor, Ascot & Maidenhead. Earlier this year, we were commissioned by the RBWM, to devise an informative and interactive training program, aimed at raising the  awareness of Dementia within our local community . In addition, our training program has been designed to demonstrate how seriously the disease affects the lives of the many people it touches. As a result of our collaboration with the RBWM, ‘ ADS ’ Dementia Awareness Training in the Community will be delivered to all attendees as a ‘ free of charge ’ two-hour session and all organisations, operating in the RBWM, have the opportunity to nominate multiple numbers of delegate attendees. Availability at each session will be strictly limited and therefore an early booking is strongly recommended , to ensure that you and/or your nominated attendees are not disappointed. Please Note : If our currently arranged training dates are not suitable, please let us know and we will make all efforts to ensure that you are informed when additional dates are added to our calendar Course Content: Introductions and any experience of dementia Facts & figures about dementia Brief description of different types of dementia DVD showing what it is like to have dementia Discussion re the video What happens in the brain to memory when you have dementia Things that you might notice if you suspect someone has dementia How to approach someone you suspect has dementia Understanding difficult behaviour Q&A The course is complemented by a pack containing various information sheets covering discussions from the day together with our latest newsletter. Book your place or *Contact us* [email protected] or 07513 762900 Who can Attend?: Anyone living or working in the Royal Borough if Windsor & Maidenhead. Our training has been specifically developed to accommodate the awareness needs of all individuals and agencies, such as; commercial organisations, six form pupils, faith groups, retailers, (large and small – all sectors) and public agencies etc., and so attendees of our training will achieve an enhanced understanding of the condition, which will assist them in their daily work and life. Training course attendees will also be introduced to many of the issues people with dementia encounter and they will be encouraged to explore how best to manage many of the more common situations. Booking more than 1 person: You can bulk book 1 to 25 people to a public event. We can also bring the training to you and arrange Private training at your facility for large numbers (12+) of delegates on request - this can be either 1 or 2 hour time slots, tailored to suit your availability, and is also free of charge. Follow Up Training : Following completion of our training, some attendees may be considered eligible to, at a later date, join a “Train the Trainer” session, as in so doing these individuals will be empowered to share the important lessons they have learned, with colleagues within the greater structure of their own organisation and/or environment. Conditions: As previously mentioned, ‘ ADS ’ - Dementia Awareness Training in the Community, is offered on a ‘ free of charge ’ basis, however, should any booked attendees (to any session) fail to attend, it should be noted that non-attendance will attract a per delegate charge of £75 (invoiced) unless 72 hours/3 working days notice is given. We do understand that things happen beyond our control and this fee will be waivered on only one occation when registering and attending on an alternative date. Testimonials "A great free service, giving a real insight into dementia. Hopefully even if just a little information can be taken away by all that attend it will help in society." Legal Exec “I was at a presentation last night at Berks Search & Rescue given by 'ADS'. It was the best talk I've seen in years and certainly helps us understanding the condition more.

When shopping for a new data processing platform for IoT solutions, many development teams want to be able to test-drive options before making a choice. Yet when evaluating an IoT solution, it’s simply not feasible to do so at scale with physical devices. Building a sensor simulator is the next best choice; however, generating a realistic simulation at very high TPS with ease of configurability is a formidable challenge. When dealing with multiple application or transport protocols, you would be...
Smart cities have the potential to change our lives at so many levels for citizens: less pollution, reduced parking obstacles, better health, education and more energy savings. Real-time data streaming and the Internet of Things (IoT) possess the power to turn this vision into a reality. However, most organizations today are building their data infrastructure to focus solely on addressing immediate business needs vs. a platform capable of quickly adapting emerging technologies to address future ...
We are given a desktop platform with Java 8 or Java 9 installed and seek to find a way to deploy high-performance Java applications that use Java 3D and/or Jogl without having to run an installer. We are subject to the constraint that the applications be signed and deployed so that they can be run in a trusted environment (i.e., outside of the sandbox). Further, we seek to do this in a way that does not depend on bundling a JRE with our applications, as this makes downloads and installations rat...

In this strange new world where more and more power is drawn from business technology, companies are effectively straddling two paths on the road to innovation and transformation into digital enterprises. The first path is the heritage trail – with “legacy” technology forming the background. Here, extant technologies are transformed by core IT teams to provide more API-driven approaches. Legacy systems can restrict companies that are transitioning into digital enterprises. To truly become a lead...
Digital Transformation (DX) is not a "one-size-fits all" strategy. Each organization needs to develop its own unique, long-term DX plan.

The IoT Will Grow: In what might be the most obvious prediction of the decade, the IoT will continue to expand next year, with more and more devices coming online every single day. What isn’t so obvious about this prediction: where that growth will occur. The retail, healthcare, and industrial/supply chain industries will likely see the greatest growth. Forrester Research has predicted the IoT will become “the backbone” of customer value as it continues to grow. It is no surprise that retail is ...
