Becoming a Dementia friend

Hi all, 
This is going to be a totally different but incrediably important post. 

A few weeks ago, a work colleague completed her Dementia Champion training and held her first ever talk. I was invited along with a few other people and was really inspired by her and her process of explaining how to be more aware of people within the community and understanding what Dementia really is. Along with a seasoned Dementia Champion Friend who was there for support she delivered an amazing session. As part of the talk we took part in activities such as Dementia bingo and it really helped to bring the message home.

 And so I am now a Dementia friend. It only took an hour but we learnt so much. This is an incredible way to become more aware of the condition, remove stigma and educate yourself in the process.

I would definitely recommend checking out the Dementia Friends website.

You may also find saying my last goodbye interesting.
