Circle Bath spreads awareness about dementia
A Dementia Friend learns more about what it's like to live with dementia, with the aim of turning this understanding into action.
Circle Bath hospital tasked ourselves with making as many staff partners Dementia Friends as possible – anyone of any age, job or experience can become a Dementia Friend. Since March 2016, we created 265 Dementia Friends within our staff partners, from clinical staff and nurses, to administrators, hospitality staff and senior management.
Whether it is attending a Dementia Friends Information Session ran by one of our volunteer Dementia Champions, or watching the Alzheimer Society's online video, Dementia Friends is about learning more about dementia and the small ways people can help. Telling people about Dementia Friends, considering the challenges of dementia when supporting our patients, visiting someone living with dementia – every action counts.
