This is a fun, interactive way to learn a little about dementia and how it can affect people’s lives. Led by Melissa, a Dementia Friends Champion, the Session lasts 45 minutes and covers five key messages that everyone should know about dementia, through activities and discussion.
At the end of the Information Session, participants have the opportunity to turn their understanding into action by committing to a dementia-friendly action. No action is too big or small – from wearing a Dementia Friends badge to spreading the word on social media.
Please note: A Dementia Friends Information Session is not training; volunteer Champions are not dementia experts, will not be able to provide further information or advice and are not DBS-checked.
