This year’s campaign will run from 16-22 May. Led by the Alzheimer’s Society, Dementia Action Week is a national event that sees the public coming together to take action to improve the lives of people affected by dementia. 
What are we doing?
In honour of Dementia Action Week, our Dementia Friends Champion Trudi Scrivener will be hosting, next Thursday 19 May, two virtual online information sessions. Open to anyone who would like to know more about Dementia and become a dementia friend.

Live in dementia care

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.

We’re proud that so many of our carers and staff are Dementia Friends and would like to encourage all of you, whether you are caring for someone living with dementia, or not, to take this opportunity and sit in on one of my virtual online Dementia Friends sessions.  It is super easy and informative, being a Dementia Friend simply means learning more about dementia, putting yourself in the shoes of someone living with the condition, and turning your understanding into action.

You can support us by attending one of our dementia sessions , sharing all events on your social media pages and talking about it to friends and family. Every time we talk about dementia we get a step closer to creating a more, supportive society. The kind of society we can all be proud to be part of.
