We are the Champions!
Date online: 04/11/2014
Dementia Friends Champions are the volunteers leading the Dementia Friend initiative to creat dementia friendly communities by helping one million people gain a better understanding of dementia and turn that understanding into action.
Nosheen can provide information to staff, the general public and clients which will ultimately enable us to create Dementia Friendly Communities.
This initiative is free to join and does not entail any commitment apart from attending an informal, short dementia information session which is delivered by Nosheen, our Dementia Friends Champion.
Why do we need dementia friends?
77% of people with dementia feel anxious and depressed
75% of people in the UK don't think society is geared up to deal with people with dementia
67% of people with dementia do not always feel part of the community
61% of people with dementia feel lonely always or some of the time
48% of people with dementia feel like a burden to their family
44% of people with dementia feel they lost friends after being diagnosed
