Free training session – Saturday 25th February 2017, 9.45-11.15am, Chantry House, Towcester (next to the Post Office)
Have you ever wondered how you can understand dementia more, or help those who live with it? Dementia Friends is an Alzheimer’s Society led initiative which aims to increase dementia awareness and change the way the nation thinks, talks and acts about dementia.
A Dementia Friend is someone who has attended a one hour information session and has committed to an action that will make the lives of people living with dementia a little bit better. Anyone of any age can be a Dementia Friend and every action counts - from helping someone to find the right bus to spreading the word about dementia on social media.
You are invited to come to a free training session in the Chantry House on Saturday 25th February 9.45-11.15am to understand a little bit more about dementia and what it’s like to live with dementia; then turn that understanding into action, and become a Dementia Friend.
Lynda Hadfield our local trained Dementia Friends Champion looks forward to welcoming you.
