The Mind in the Workplace

The Mind in the Workplace Series, focuses on the importance of mental health in the workplace. Mental health can be a topic that many shy away from in the workplace. Breaking the silence on this topic strengthens our ability to be inclusive and aware of challenges that others may be struggling with. Join us in this important series to learn more about mental health challenges and ways to support employees who experience mental health challenges so that everyone in the workplace can thrive.

Week 11: The Mind in the Workplace - Dementia, Alzheimer's, and Memory Loss

IMPORTANT: Leadership video is also available at:

Please Note: The Mind in the Workplace series aims to educate and spread awareness about mental health disorders and their impact on the workplace. However, members of the HR team are NOT mental health professionals. The information provided should not be used to self-diagnose, nor does it fully depict the complexity of each mental health disorder referenced. We understand that mental health looks different from person to person for numerous reasons. Therefore, please use discretion and consider doing external research when viewing the videos in this series.

Discussion Questions:

  1. If you notice that you or one of your team members has been having memory issues that are more debilitating or disruptive, what are some ways you can compassionately approach the issue? 

  2. How can familiarity with Alzheimer's or other forms of dementia give you more compassion and understanding for team members who have family or friends suffering from Alzheimer's?  

  3. Do you have a family member or close friend who had Alzheimer's. Could you share a good memory with your team of who they were before Alzheimer's, and maybe something you remember them struggling with after they were diagnosed.  (Try to share the good memory last so Alzheimer's doesn't get the last word!)
