This Dementia Friends Workshop was held at Ramgharia Gurudwara Sahib, Bradford on 18th May 2014. It was run by Cathy Henwood, Bradford Dementia Friendly Communities Coordinator. Over 35 people of all ages became Dementia Friends!
“People with dementia don’t just lose their memories; they can also lose their friends. This is because people with dementia can start to behave differently. And sometimes those friends might not understand or know how to react.
However, it is possible to live well with dementia, especially with the support of friends. No matter how big, or how small, every action counts. That’s because people with dementia need friends more than ever.
That’s why (the Alzheimer’s Society is) creating one million Dementia Friends, who will help people with dementia to live well for longer.”
