Dementia Friends - session 1

Dementia Friends is the biggest ever initiative to change people’s perceptions of dementia. It aims to transform the way we think, act and talk about the condition.

The session will be delivered by Dan, Education & Meeting Place Coordinator at Dementia Jersey. Dan will help you learn about what it’s like to live with dementia so you can turn that understanding into action by helping others around you. This may be as simple as telling others about Dementia Friends, visiting someone you know living with dementia, or being more patient in a shop queue - every action counts!

Learn the 5 key messages from this fun and interactive session and earn yourself a Dementia Friends badge.
