You just may be surprised by how much you can do. Talking about dementia with friends, visiting someone you know with dementia, being a bit more patient if someone is needing more time in a queue.
So, a little can go along way.
For those of you who are comfortable with public speaking you can go one step further and become a Dementia Friend Champion arranging information sessions . You would be trained and supported by Alzheimers Society …what a great way to create a dementia friendly community.
Have a look at the following, take your time and just let the words sink in ~ it is heartbreaking not only for those who have dementia but think about their own families and how it is for them too. They also need your support.
Whichever you choose, Dementia Friend or Dementia Friend Champion, the goal is always the same…to raise understanding and ways to support anyone living with dementia.
