Here at Home Instead are supporting the Alzheimer's Society's Dementia Friends Initiative. Whilst also supporting @Dementia Friendly Wrexham.
In the last 10 days Matthew Murray-James owner of the Wrexham office has delivered 2 Dementia Friends Sessions, 1 at Eagles Meadow Shopping Centre to local business employees based at Eagles Meadow, the 2nd was to our own CAREGivers at Home Instead in Wrexham.
Alzheimer’s Society’s Dementia Friends programme is our biggest ever initiative to change people’s perceptions of dementia.
Dementia touches the lives of millions of people across the UK. Dementia Friends was launched to tackle the stigma and lack of understanding that means many people with the condition experience loneliness and social exclusion. We need to create more communities and businesses that are dementia friendly so that people affected by dementia feel understood and included
We are also supporting both @Dementia Friendly Wrexham and @Dementia Friendly Mold Communities in making in their endeavours to Wrexham and Mold dementia friendly environments. Both have Facebook pages which will advertise where your local Dementia Friend session is next being held.
