Dementia Friends


More and more people living with dementia face social isolation. Why not learn more about dementia and the challenges people face so you can help support them. It’s likely you may know of people struggling to live with dementia, but perhaps you don’t know what to do. The Alzheimer’s Society initiative Dementia Friends is a great place to start.
Become a Dementia Friend yourself, or volunteer as a champion. You can even find out how to get your workplace involved. Or, simply find out a bit more about the condition. You never know when your knowledge might come in useful and really make a difference to someone.
