Become a Dementia Friend
Full Circle funeral director, Ruth Owen has been a Dementia Friends Champion since 2017. She delivers Dementia Friends workshops and has supported over 200 people to become Dementia Friends across Yorkshire and beyond.
With a little knowledge we can all contribute to making our communities better spaces for people living with Dementia and those who care for them. This training is a powerful and engaging way to do just that.
Who is this for?
This workshop is for anyone who wants to better understand Dementia and how they can contribute to making our communities better places.
This workshop is for people who have no previous experience of Dementia, those who have lived experience and everyone in between.
What is covered?
The Dementia Friends Information Session is an impactful, interactive session where we learn that by increasing our understanding and awareness of Dementia we can support someone we know and people in our community to live well with their dementia.
This Alzheimer’s Society initiative teaches us 5 key things that they would like people to know that helps to support someone with their dementia and we go through those using analogies and lived experiences to give us a greater awareness and understanding.
Becoming a Dementia Friend can really make a difference to how you think of dementia.
How is it delivered?
We offer both in-person and virtual training so you to fit our courses into your busy schedule.
The session is a minimum of 40 minutes long.
