Dementia Friends  An important aspect of creating dementia friendly communities is to ensure that people are aware of dementia and understand how it can affect people’s lives. Dementia Friends information sessions aims to create better understanding and awareness of dementia. By raising awareness, we also hope to inspire people to act to support people affected by dementia in our local communities.

Dementia Champions will be looking to do Dementia Friends sessions in the near future.
