Dementia Friends in the Maidenhead office

14-03-2018

On 13 March, 11 people in our Maidenhead office took part in an information session hosted by Time Finders Ltd to become Dementia Friends. This resonated with many of our team members and was an important step in understanding and perhaps changing the way they think, act and talk about dementia.

The five key messages the session delivers:

  1. Dementia is not a natural part of ageing
  2. Dementia is caused by diseases of the brain
  3. Dementia is not just about losing your memory – it can affect thinking, communicating and doing everyday tasks
  4. It’s possible to live well with dementia
  5. There’s more to a person than the dementia

Some of the now Dementia Friends have said the impact of this session is real. As a result, they identified the small ways they can help and change their behaviours in their personal and professional lives.

We would like to encourage others to go on an information session. Dementia will be huge in the coming years and further understanding and awareness is so important. If you would like more information please contact Time Finders Ltd.
