Dementia Friends

Education Centre
In 2015 Saint Francis Hospice made its first steps to becoming a Dementia Friendly Organisation with all staff attending this Dementia Friends session. Dementia Friends is an Alzheimer’s Society led initiative which aims to increase Dementia awareness, and turn that understanding into action. It is part of the Prime Minister’s Challenge on Dementia. There are now over one million Dementia Friends across England and Wales and numbers are growing. Saint Francis Hospice has a team of Dementia Friends Champions who are able to deliver sessions and we welcome anyone to attend.

Sessions take one hour and there is no fee for this session. Attendees will learn more about dementia and the small ways they can help.
