Dementia friends and focal point workshop

Wednesday, 20 May, 2015 7:30 to 9:30pm
Thistle Cheltenham Hotel, Gloucester Road, Cheltenham, GL51 0TS


Dear colleague, More than 84,000 people in the South West have dementia. Nationally, a person develops dementia every three minutes; the cost of dementia is over £23 billion per year. Pharmacy teams are ideally placed to improve the lives of those living with dementia; both those diagnosed with the condition and their carers. The Dementia Friends initiative encourages everyone to find out more about dementia and how they can help.

Having successfully reached the goal of one million Dementia Friends by March 2015, the Alzheimer’s Society has now taken over the funding for the initiative and has committed to a new target of four million Dementia Friends by 2020.

Dementia Awareness Week 2015 (DAW2015) is taking place from 17-23 May in England, Wales and Northern Ireland. Because life doesn’t end when dementia begins the message for DAW2015 is to ‘Do Something New’. Have you planned your campaign? Why not start by encouraging all members of your team to  become Dementia Friends?

A light buffet will be provided.

Booking ref: 44006
