Dementia Friends Awareness Session 20th July 2016

Due to demand we have added another Dementia Friends awareness session

Our next Dementia Friends awareness session will be taking place at Artisans Collective CIC, Prestatyn The Old Library, Art Craft and Heritage Centre at 17:30 Wednesday 20th July.

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 our 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.

Dementia Friendly Awareness in Prestatyn

Alzheimer’s Society’s Dementia Friendly Communities programme focuses on improving inclusion and quality of life for people with dementia in a number of ways. One of these ways is through the Dementia Friendly Communities recognition process, which encourages communities to sign up and work towards becoming dementia-friendly.
