A Dementia Friend learns a little bit more about what it’s like to live with dementia and then turns that understanding into action. Whether you attend a face-to-face Dementia Friends Information Session or watch an online video, Dementia Friends is about learning more about dementia and the small ways you can help.
Sessions are run by volunteer Dementia Friends Champions, who are trained and supported by the Alzheimer’s Society. I completed training to be a Champion so I often deliver sessions out and about in the community to groups and businesses.
Each session lasts about an hour and they’re totally free. You’ll learn more about dementia and how you can help to create dementia friendly communities.
