NEW ... Dementia Friends

JDF

The Dementia Friends programme aims to change the way people think, act and talk about dementia. Specially trained Dementia Champions will deliver face to face awareness sessions to small groups, schools and in the workplace aimed to help people learn about what it is like to live with dementia and asks them to turn that understanding into action by helping others around them. This may be as simple as telling others about Dementia Friends or visiting someone they know living with dementia, every action counts.

Since its inception the global Dementia Friends network has seen over 2.8 million people attend dementia awareness sessions. JAA are thrilled to be leading the programme in Jersey which is now the 48th country to join the biggest ever initiative to change people’s perception of dementia.’
