Become a Dementia Friend Understand a bit more about dementia, and the little ways you can help

People with dementia get by with a little help from their friends. And anybody can become a Dementia Friend. It’s just about understanding a bit more about dementia and the small things you can do to help people with the condition.

People with dementia want to carry on going about their daily lives and feeling included in their local community, but they sometimes need a helping hand to do so. Dementia Friends learn a little bit about what it's like to live with dementia and turns that understanding into action. This could be helping someone find the right bus or being patient in a till queue if someone with dementia is taking longer to pay. Every action counts.

Being a Dementia Friend isn’t about volunteering or fundraising (though you can do that too if you want). https://www.dementiafriends.org.uk/
