Business become ‘dementia friends’ in charity partnership

Capita, Smart Cover Insurance, and Lonsdale Wealth Management took part in dementia friends information sessions in their offices, as part of an ongoing partnership with charity Alzheimer’s Society

Alzheimer’s Society Dementia Friends programme is the biggest ever initiative to change the way people act, think and talk about dementia so everyone can get the care and support they need in their community as well as through health organisations.

A Dementia Friend is someone that has a greater understanding of dementia, and how the condition can affect a person’s day to day life, and what they can do to support someone with dementia.
