At the beginning of March we held our first dementia friends Session.
Tom, a dementia champion, joined us on the 7 th March and delivered a short informative session to family, friends and even some residents!
This was hugely successful and we had some wonderful feedback from all who attended, these have now been given the status of a ‘dementia friend’.
In light of this being such a hit we’re looking at further courses and speakers for family members to attend. We think this of huge importance to help enhance the knowledge of staff, family and friends and to help all of us work together in a positive and insightful way.
If this is a particular topic you’d be interested in seeing please let us know and we will organize a session relating to this!
Please see the Dementia Friends website for more information about the initiative.
