Dementia doesn’t care who you are; it could affect us all. Because public understanding is so poor, people with dementia often feel – and are – misunderstood, marginalised and isolated. And that means that they’re less likely to be able to live independently in their own communities.
Dementia Friends Information Sessions are run by volunteer Dementia Friends Champions, who are trained and supported by Alzheimer’s Society. Each Information Session lasts around one hour during which you will learn more about dementia and how you can help create a dementia friendly environment.
We have an Information Session taking place at our Canterbury campus on Thursday 8 February, from 12.00-13.00 in Keynes Seminar Room 4. You will need to sign up first via Kent Union’s volunteering webpages.
