Pondero Newbury – Dementia: Changing perceptions
Transform the way you think, act and talk about dementia.
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.
This Dementia Friends information session 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. In this talk, you’ll learn more about dementia, how it affects a person and what you can do to help people affected by dementia in your community.
Alzheimer’s Society is the UK’s leading dementia charity, they campaign for change, fund research to find a cure and support people living with dementia today.
Dementia is the UK’s biggest killer. Someone develops it every three minutes and there’s currently no cure.
We know it is scary facing up to it, but we must confront the biggest health and social care challenge of our time. Thanks to your support, Alzheimer’s Society is facing dementia head on. Inspired by your voices, we’re leading the way in support, society and research. We are calling on everyone to unite. Working together we know we will achieve our vision – a world without dementia.
