An Alzheimer’s Society survey revealed that the main reason why 69% of people with dementia stop going out is a lack of confidence. Your encouragement and support will help people living with dementia to remain part of the community, be more active in the local area and live better, more fulfilled lives.
What can you do to make a difference? Give up one hour of your time to become a Dementia Friend. 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 better. Every action counts – from taking a little more time when serving someone to spreading the word about dementia.
Dementia Friends is an Alzheimer’s Society led initiative. It aims to increase dementia awareness and change the way the nation thinks, talks and acts about dementia.
Tuesday 10th October 8.30-9.30pm Saint Andrew’s Centre.
