Local school girl Beth, Daughter of our CAREGiver Annette, came to our office last month to interview Karen, our Dementia Friends Champion...
Having had personal experience of Alzheimer’s & dementia from her grandma who had mixed dementia, one of Beth’s friends spoke to her a while ago about Alzheimer’s disease when her own grandparent started with symptoms, Beth told her everything she knew & tried to be reassuring.
After that, Beth decided that she’d like to represent her school & raise awareness about Dementia within her age group, in case other pupils were also going through the same within their family.
Beth wanted to interview Karen & become a dementia friend so that she could gain more knowledge about Alzheimer’s disease. She’s now taken that knowledge & made a presentation of her interview & dementia friend session, which she will be sharing at school in an assembly.
