About this Event

What is the Dementia Friends programme?

Alzheimer’s Society’s Dementia Friends programme is a huge initiative to change people’s perceptions of dementia.

It aims to transform the way the nation thinks, acts and talks about the condition. Stigma and lack of understanding cause many people with the condition to experience loneliness and social exclusion.

Dementia Friends is about learning more about dementia and the small ways you can help, particularly when you are serving someone in a shop or restaurant or you have a client with dementia - every action counts.

What is a Dementia Friend?

A Dementia Friend is someone who attends a training and information session such as this.

They learn five key messages about dementia and a little bit about what it is like to live with

dementia. They then turn their understanding into a practical action that could help someone with dementia living in their community. Their action could be as big or as small as they choose

– because every action counts!

What is an Information Session?

Dementia Friends Information Sessions are run by volunteer Dementia Friends Champions,

who are trained and supported by Alzheimer’s Society. Each Information Session lasts around 45 minutes.

You will learn more about dementia and how you can help to create dementia-friendly communities.

The sessions take place on 23rd January at 8.30 - 9.15 and 9.30 - 10.15

Although the training is complimentary, there is a cost of £4.00 per head to cover the room hire and refreshments at the Park Hotel, Diss.
