Become a Dementia Friend: Learn about what it is like to live with dementia and how to best support persons living with dementia.
About this Event:
Dementia Friends is a global movement that is changing the way people think, act, and talk about dementia. Developed by the Alzheimer’s Society in the United Kingdom, the Dementia Friends movement is now spreading through Connecticut. By helping everyone in a community understand what dementia is and how it affects people, each of us can make a difference for people touched by dementia.
Dementia Friends information sessions in Connecticut are facilitated by volunteer Champions who have been trained by the LiveWell (formerly the Alzheimer’s Resource Center).
You will walk away with a Certificate of Acknowledgement that YOU are a Dementia Friend.
