Five members of staff at Voluntary Action Merthyr Tydfil have today become Dementia Friends following an Information Session delivered by Elaine James, Community Coordinator. A Dementia Friend learns a little bit more about what it's like to live with dementia and then turns that understanding into action - anyone of any age can be a Dementia Friend. Dementia Friends is about learning more about dementia and the small ways you can help. From telling friends about Dementia Friends to visiting someone you know living with dementia, every action counts.
Dementia Friends Information Sessions are run by volunteer Dementia Friends Champions, who are trained and supported by Alzheimer’s Society. Each Information Session lasts around one hour. You will learn more about dementia and how you can help to create dementia friendly communities. If you would be interested in becoming a Dementia Friend, or if you would like a Dementia Friends sessions delivered for you organisation to become part of the Dementia Friendly Community of Merthyr Tydfil, then please email Elaine James or ring 07580866547 for further information.

The award committee is anxious to ensure that as many organisations as possible are aware of the scheme as there are many young people in Mid Glamorgan who are worthy of an award so I would be grateful if you could circulate the attached entry form to anyone you consider would be eligible.
