Dementia Action Week 2019 – become a dementia friends

As part of Dementia Action Week 2019 – a national event to raise awareness about this disease, Dementia Support will be holding dementia friends sessions at Sage House.

What is a dementia friend?

Alzheimer’s Society’s Dementia Friends programme is the biggest ever initiative to change people’s perceptions of dementia. It aims to transform the way the nation thinks, acts and talks about the condition.

Become a dementia friend, or make your business or organisation dementia friendly. A session lasts up to an hour and will give you valuable insight into what it is like to live with dementia.

Our sessions in Dementia Action Week are taking place on:

  • Monday 20th May, 10am – 11am
  • Tuesday 21st May, 2pm – 3pm
  • Wednesday 22nd May, 2pm – 3pm
  • Friday 24th May, 11am – 12noon

Register by calling us on: 01243 888 691 or email: info@dementia-support.org.uk Please note these sessions are free of charge.
