Health and Wellbeing @Work 2015
Join us at the Health and Wellbeing @Work conference and exhibition at the NEC Birmingham on the 3rd and 4th March 2015.
Cambridge Cognition will be exhibiting at the Health and Wellbeing @Work conference and exhibition at the NEC Birmingham on the 3rd and 4th March 2015.
Health and Wellbeing @ Work is 'all about improving the health and wellbeing of work-aged people’ an important objective that we can help achieve.
The age demographic of the working population is changing. With the abolition of the default retirement age many people are choosing to work longer. According to the Office of National Statisitics (ONS), by 2020, people aged 50+ will represent 48% of the adult population and 32% of working age population.
With this changing age profile comes a changing risk profile, particularly associated with our cognitive health which governs what work we do and for how long we are able to do it.
Employers are now able to use our assessments for the early detection of cognitive impairment to help manage this growing risk. Over the course of the two days, we will be sharing our approach with a wide range of employers and occupational health professionals.
The key benefits of identifying a problem as early as possible include:
- Peace of mind for everyone concerned by being able to rule out treatable conditions that may have symptoms similar to dementia
- Getting the right help at the right time – getting a full diagnosis can be a lengthy process
- Giving the employer every possible chance to make suitable adjustments
- Accessing new treatments that may alter the underlying disease process and have the potential to slow or halt its progression
- Having a benchmark to compare future results as the condition is monitored
- If diagnosed early enough, the individual still having the cognitive ability to plan their lives and future more effectively and the ability to work through those plans with their employer and family
- Being able to access advice, information and support (emotional, practical and financial) from social services, voluntary agencies and support groups.
