UEA and Norvic Training GERT Suit Experience Day

The UEA and Norvic Training (and N&SCS endorsed learning provider) are putting on an interactive training day which gives carers and healthcare professionals an insight into what it’s like to live in an ageing body.


Using the specially-developed GERT suit, delegates explore how an older person, or someone living with dementia, experiences and responds to the world around them.

During the course delegates will:

  • experience some of the effects on their vision, hearing, mobility and coordination that the ageing body can bring.
  • gain a better understanding of the impact of ageing on self-esteem
  • examine how we can promote wellbeing through effective communication

You can watch Wendy from Norvic Training trying out the suit on their YouTube channel.

The full-day session takes place on Tuesday 24 July from 10am – 4pm at the NEAT Suite, UEA, Norwich.

The cost is £125 per delegate.
