Dementia Awareness Session

Monday, 20 May, 2019 - 10:30 to 11:30

Please check with the event organiser before making a special trip to this event.

Become a Dementia Friend – are you dementia aware in your workplace?

 

A Dementia Friend learns a little bit more about what it's like to live with dementia and then turns that understanding into action - anyone of any age can be a Dementia Friend. Whether you attend a face-to-face Dementia Friends Information Session or watch the Alzheimer’s Society online video, Dementia Friends is about learning more about dementia and the small ways you can help. From telling friends about Dementia Friends to visiting someone you know living with dementia, every action counts.

 

Gateshead Dementia Action Alliance are offering Dementia Friends Information Sessions to work places on the BH@WA. The sessions are run by volunteer Dementia Friends Champions, who are trained and supported by Alzheimer’s Society. Each Information Session lasts around one hour. You will learn more about dementia and how you can help to create dementia friendly communities.
