I am a Dementia Friend. This training gave me an insight into this terrible disease. I see many clients who have been diagnosed with dementia and I act on behalf of families whose close ones have been affected by the disease. The training emphasised how even the smallest of actions can make someone suffering form dementia feel more at ease and more importantly make them still feel a valuable member of our community.
