Dementia help to be available

VITAL information sessions on dementia will run at a Bognor Regis care home next month.

Managers and staff at Greenways, in Hawthorn Road, are looking for members of the public to to sign up to attend the Dementia Friends event at 6pm on March 30.

Having volunteered to be a Dementia Friends Champion, home manager Rhona Lee will be delivering sessions over the coming months.

She said: “I signed up to be a champion because we are passionate about improving the general understanding of dementia in our local community.

“It’s easy to get involved. I signed up through the website and attended a one-day training course on how to deliver the sessions.”

The one-hour session is part of the Alzheimer’s Society’s Dementia Friends programme to help the public understand what it might be like to live with dementia. Visit www.dementiafriends.org.uk
