Become a dementia friend and make a difference

04 Jun 2013

Senior lady with carerAlzheimer’s Society has launched a new initiative called Dementia Friends to improve people’s understanding of dementia and the ways they can help people who experience this often distressing condition.

The project, which is supported by the government, aims to create a network of a million dementia friends across England by 2015.

Alzheimers Society says: “People with dementia sometimes need a helping hand to go about their daily lives and feel included in their local community. Dementia Friends is giving people an understanding of dementia and the small things they can do that can make a difference to people living with dementia – from helping someone find the right bus to spreading the word about dementia.”
