One Community Training Programme 2018
Dementia Friends Information Session
Thursday 10 May 2018, 9.30am – 11.30am
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.
Come along to this free session to learn more about dementia, what it’s like to live with dementia and how to turn that understanding into action.
