Dementia Friend Ann Conroy shared this great story about the actions she takes as a Dementia Friend to help her friend who is living with dementia:
'I have a friend who line dances with me. She has dementia and realises that the disease is progressing. My friends and I encourage her to keep coming to the class and I do my best to call out the steps in an unobtrusive way so that she can continue to join us. We go to the local Wetherspoons for coffee afterwards and enjoy the chats.
Dementia Friends helps me to understand my friend's struggles a little more and encourages me to continue supporting her.'
