Making (Dementia) Friends

Dementia’s a condition that affects some of our clients and many older people in our community.

There’s no cure (yet) but, even so, there are still many things we can all do to minimise the effect it has on the individual's happiness and well-being.

That’s why we regularly run Dementia Friends Workshops - not just for our own CAREGivers but for members of the public. Many of the people attending have family that are affected while some just want to help make South Manchester a better place for people living with the condition.

Alison recently got her first certificate from the Alzheimer’s Society recognising the number of people she’s taken through the programme. But she’s not finished yet! We’ll be running more free workshops for the public soon so if you’re interested just give [email protected] a call on 0161 884 0562.
