Successful Dementia Awareness Session

dementia-friendsThe Alzheimer’s society Dementia Friends programme is the biggest ever initiative to change people’s perceptions of Dementia. Good Neighbours’ had an excellent information session on October 24th as a result of which 24 new “Dementia Friends” were signed up. A very helpful and encouraging video was shared with the group which gave a more positive spin on living with dementia. This video featuring Dr Jennifer Bute – a retired GP with dementia herself – is well worth a look.. Good Neighbours hopes to run further information sessions in the future which will be advertised here.
