“Continuous learning is the minimum requirement for success in any field.” Brian Tracy

At GERATEC, relationship directed support is at the core of everything we do. We believe that it is within the interdependence of people that human beings can learn, grow, and flourish. That is why GERATEC offers free monthly webinars to anyone in the industry who would like to attend.

GERALEARN offers education and training not just to our own employees, but also to others in the industry. As an industry leader, with 25 years of experience, it is our privilege to share our knowledge and experience.

Free Webinars

The series of free webinars that we started at the end of 2021 was such a great success that we have decided to continue offering one free webinar per month from January 2022 to November 2022.

Presented by industry experts, our free webinars cover a wide variety of topics that range from living well with dementia to special diets and basic hygiene in the workplace. These short introductory sessions allow participants to gain valuable knowledge and to engage with leaders in their thought fields. Most webinars are also offered as full day (or longer workshops) that can be booked for your organisation if you would like to share this knowledge as widely as possible. Our webinars are presented via Zoom on the last Thursday of each month. While each webinar is entirely free, registration is required in order to gain access to the webinar via a Zoom link.

Memory Café Talks

We are proud to introduce Memory Café: a series of talks presented by our team of specialists. At GERATEC, it is our passion to educate older persons and the people who love and support them in the most accessible ways possible. We are now able to offer you a world of knowledge in a setting that suits you.

Our talks are perfect for breakfasts as well as mid-afternoon or early evening events, and while there are a range of topics our talks already cover in the fields of nutrition and dementia, we are always willing to customise our presentations to suit your audience.

The best part of our Memory Café talks is the fact that they are absolutely free! The only expense on your behalf is travelling costs for establishments that are situated more than 100 km outside of Somerset West. As long as a suitable venue and the necessary catering is arranged, we’ll be there.

To book a Memory Café, please contact Madi Nothnagel at marketing@geratecza.com.
