Dementia Friends Information SessionMonday May 6, 2019
7:00 PM until 8:15 PM
Dementia Friends USA is a global movement that is changing the way people think, act, and talk about dementia. Developed by the Alzheimer’s Society in the United Kingdom, the Dementia Friends initiative is underway in the USA. By helping everyone in a community understand what dementia is and how it affects people, each of us can make a difference for people touched by dementia.
A Dementia Friend is someone who, through viewing a series of online videos, learns about what it's like to live with dementia and then turns that understanding into action. From telling friends about the Dementia Friends program to visiting someone who is living with dementia, every action counts. Anyone of any age can be a Dementia Friend – we all have a part to play in creating dementia-friendly communities!
This Information Session is run by a Dementia Friends Champion. It covers the five key messages everyone should know about dementia through activities and discussion, but the session is not a formal training. Those who attend are asked to commit to a dementia-friendly action and can become a Dementia Friend.
