Making friends to raise awareness of dementia
Dementia Awareness Week runs from Sunday 15 to Saturday 21 May. To highlight the little things that people can do to make life easier for people with dementia we’ve run over 40 sessions for staff who have become Dementia Friends. This week we made our 300th Dementia Friend, as part of its support for making communities more dementia friendly and raising awareness of the condition.
Staff have also raised over £450 for the Alzheimer’s Society which runs support services for people with dementia and their families.
