Catherine James a Dementia Friends champion from Carers First attended our June club meeting. She delivered an interactive session introducing our members to Dementia Friends. This is the UK’s biggest initiative to change the way people think, act and talk about dementia.
We explored how dementia can affect someone and what those around them can do to support them to continue to ‘live well’ with dementia.
Everyone present signed up to become a Dementia Friend and agreed to take at least one positive action. Catherine presented us all with our Dementia Friend badges.
