Creating Dementia Friendly Communities

Posted on March 22nd, 2018

dementia-friendsDementia Friends – helping to create dementia friendly communities

Dementia Friends is an Alzheimer’s Society led initiative which aims to increase dementia awareness and change the way the nation thinks, talks and acts about dementia.

A Dementia Friend is someone who has attended a one hour information session and has committed to an action that will make the lives of people living with dementia a little bit better. Anyone of any age can be a Dementia Friend and every action counts, from helping someone to find the right bus to spreading the word about dementia on social media.

Dementia Friends Champions are trained volunteers who encourage their family, friends, colleagues and local community to understand a little bit more about dementia, what it’s like to live with dementia and then turn that understanding into action.

As a trained Dementia Friends Champion, I am offering three free one hour information sessions, in which you will learn more about dementia and how you or your organisation can help to create dementia friendly communities.

These will all be held at Cliveden Manor Care Home, Marlow, SL7 1HX on the following dates :

In conjunction with this year’s National Care Home Open Day Saturday 21st April : 11am

In support of Dementia Action Week (Monday 21st to Sunday 27th May) Wednesday 23rd May : 11am Thursday 24th May : 6pm

Spaces will be limited on all sessions, so please email me to reserve your place.
