New dementia friends were created after The Bolton News hosted a free dementia awareness session. Delivered by Dementia Champion, Steve Williams of Home Instead, the session was attended by family carers and others looking to learn a little more about Alzheimer’s disease. One attendee said “I found the workshop very interesting. There is so much I don’t understand about dementia”. The Bolton News campaign is raising £200,000 through an appeal that will enable the creation of dementia friendly wards at the Royal Bolton Hospital.
