Dementia Friends

We often hear about dementia but do we really know what it is and what it’s like to have it?  It makes such a huge difference to people with dementia if those around them know what dementia is and how it might affect them.

Dementia Friends aims to make everyday life better for people with dementia by changing the way the nation thinks, talks and acts. By 2015, we want there to be a million people with the know-how to help people with dementia feel understood and included in their community.

You can find out more about how to become a Dementia  Friend by visiting www.dementiafriends.org.uk.  Alternatively, speak to Susan Fisher, who is exploring the possibility of training for Dementia Friends at St Paul’s.
