About Dementia Friends

Alzheimer’s Society’s Dementia Friends programme is the biggest ever initiative to change people’s perceptions of dementia. It aims to transform the way the nation thinks, acts and talks about the condition.

Whether you attend a face-to-face Information Session or watch the online video, Dementia Friends is about learning more about dementia and the small ways you can help. From telling friends about the Dementia Friends programme to visiting someone you know living with dementia, every action counts.

The Parish Council are keen to get Dementia Friendly Status for the village as a whole. We wrote out to all businesses and organisations early in 2020 asking them to get involved, sadly we were overtaken by the pandemic and the project had to be put on hold. Thankfully we have been able to make some small steps in the right direction recently and have been able to offer some financial support to two organisations in the village who offer services to the community and particularly the elderly. We aim to write out again to the organisations and hope that we can make some more progress in the coming months. by Nicala O'Leary
