Dementia session to improve knowledge

An initiative aimed at improving people’s knowledge of dementia is holding an information session next week.

Members of the public are invited to sign up to attend the Dementia Friends information session being run by Helen Johns next Wednesday in Longframlington Memorial Hall.

A Dementia Friend is someone who has attended a one-hour information session and has committed to an action that will make the lives of people living with dementia a little bit better.

It isn’t about creating experts, it’s about helping people understand a little bit more about what it’s like to live with the condition and then turn that understanding into action.

The one-hour, informal session, which starts at 6.30pm, is part of Alzheimer’s Society Dementia Friends programme.
