“Dementia Friends” on August 28 Judy Bartholomew from Dementia Australia led a conversation about what it means to be a Dementia Friendly community. Empathy, compassion, patience and respect were some of the words that were used frequently during the session. Attendees are now badge carrying, fully fledged Dementia Friends! It was an interesting and enlightening morning and we will be holding more of these events in the future. If you are interested please leave your name with Michelle Royce and we’ll let you know when the next one will be.
