Dementia Friends Information Session

Course Code
Course Types
A Dementia Friend is somebody that learns about dementia so they can help their community. Too many people affected by dementia feel that society fails to understand the condition they live with. Dementia Friends help by raising awareness and understanding, so that people living with dementia can continue to live in the way they want. Dementia Friends sessions help others in the city understand what they can do to make it easier for those in their community with dementia. The session consists of a 30-45 minute interactive webinar.

Learning outcomes
Dementia Friends help people living with dementia by taking actions - both big and small. These actions don’t have to be time-consuming. From visiting someone you know with dementia to being more patient in a shop queue, every action counts! Dementia Friends can get involved with things like volunteering, campaigning or wearing a badge to raise awareness. Businesses and organisations can also take steps to make their services more accessible to their communities, including improved signage or seating. Being dementia friendly helps us all to help people to live well with dementia while improving accessibility for the whole community.
