The Alzheimer’s Society’s Dementia Friends is their biggest ever initiative to change people’e perceptions of dementia. It aims to transform the way the nation thinks, acts and talks about the condition. Stigma and lack of understanding cause many people with the condition to experience loneliness and social exclusion, so Dementia Friends hopes to tackle this by creating more communities and businesses that are dementia-friendly and more
inclusive of people affected by dementia.
At SafeWise are supporting this wonderful initiative by holding Dementia Friends sessions at our
SafeWise Bournemouth centre on the following dates:
- Tuesday 30th May at 10.00am
- Thursday 29th June at 10.00am
Sessions are FREE to attend, please either call the SafeWise team on 01202 591330 or register on the Dementia friend website at www.dementiafriends.org.uk and they will forward you details to us.
