Dementia Friends

The Alzheimer’s Society’s Dementia Friends is their biggest ever initiative to change peoples’ 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 we support this initiative by holding Dementia Friends sessions. The next date is:

  • Friday 15th December at 2pm at Bailey’s Cafe, 131 Barrack Road, Christchurch BH23 2AW

It is free to attend. To book a place please email  wlpchristchurch@gmail.com or leave a message on 07743 719063

You can also register on the Dementia Friends website at www.dementiafriends.org.uk and they will forward your details to us.

 

The Alzheimer’s Society is there for anyone affected by dementia – they provide expert information and support to anyone affected by dementia.
