You could become a Dementia Friend – it’s easy!

Published Monday, 5 January 2015

Over 4000 people in Bromley live with dementia and improving the care and experience of those with the condition is a key priority for our council.

We are supporting a national campaign by the Alzheimer’s Society and Public Health England to encourage people to become Dementia Friends and find out how it affects people and the little things we can all do to help those living with the disease.  

Said Councillor Fortune, Chairman of the Health and Wellbeing Board:

“We are delighted to support this national campaign. As a council we fund and work closely with those in the field and improving the care and experience of those living with dementia is a key priority. Dementia Friends is about learning a little bit more about the condition and turning that understanding  into action.”

If you are interested in becoming a Dementia Friend go to the Dementia Friends website, www.dementiafriends.org.uk.

You can watch a short video and register for a free pack of information.
