Dementia Friends Information Session 

This is an opportunity to become a Dementia Friend.

A Dementia Friend is somebody that learns about dementia so that they can help their community.

Too many people affected by dementia feel that society fails to understand the condition they live with. Dementia Friends help by raising awareness and understanding, so that people living with dementia can continue to live in the way they want.

Dementia Friends help people living with dementia by taking actions – both big and small.

These actions don’t have to be time-consuming. From visiting someone you know with dementia to being more patient in a shop queue, every action counts! Dementia Friends can also get involved with things like volunteering, campaigning or wearing a badge to raise awareness

The training will be delivered online using zoom. 

What will I gain?

You will gain a greater understanding of what it might be like to live with dementia and the small ways you can help a person living with dementia.
