Alzheimer’s Society’s Dementia Friends programme is the biggest ever initiative to change people’s perceptions of dementia. It aims to transform the way the nation thinks, acts and talks about the condition.
Dementia Friends is about learning more about dementia and the small ways you can help. From telling friends about the Dementia Friends programme to visiting someone you know living with dementia, every action counts.
Les Taylor is Way Ahead Care’s Dementia Champion, she has trained over 110 people to be Dementia Friends over the past 2 years. That includes all of our carers.
Recently she held a session at one of our ECH’s Gibb House, and will be holding another at Elizabeth Court in the next few weeks.
