Become a Dementia Friend this New Year

News: Dementia Friends Logo

At Oxleas, we are one of the Alzheimer’s Society's partners and have been busy creating Dementia Friends – a fantastic 157 to date.

It’s quick and easy to show your commitment, either with downloaded videos, a face-to-face presentation or an approved e-learning module.

For most of us, entering the New Year means looking forward to exciting plans such as holidays, spending time with family or promotions at work. But for people affected by dementia, the year ahead may be full of the unknown and mean facing difficult and daunting challenges.

This New Year, Oxleas continues to work with the Alzheimer’s Society to ask all our colleagues to become Dementia Friends. Over 850,000 people are living with dementia in the UK, with numbers set to rise to over a million by next year.

When setting your goals and resolutions, find out what small, day-to-day changes you can make that will help people affected by dementia feel safer, less isolated and more connected.
