Dementia Friends

Let’s Make Wirral Dementia Friendly!

Become a Dementia Friend at Wirral Hospice St John’s

This year there will be 850,000 people living with dementia in the UK and over 21 million people know someone affected by the condition. All too often people with dementia experience loneliness and social exclusion. By mobilising society together we can make sure that people living with dementia are understood, included and feel part of their communities.

How can you make a difference?

Become a Dementia Friend! This is someone who has attended an Information Session and has committed to an action that will make the lives of people living with dementia a little better. Every action counts – from taking a bit more time when serving someone to spreading the word about dementia. Anybody interested in becoming a Dementia Friend can attend.

This one hour session will enable you to understand more about what Dementia is and the small things you can do to help people with this condition.
