have been looking up dementia friends and dementia friends where i live. they are quite a few active dementia friendly communities but as yet, my area is not there yet. the alz. soc. is at the forefront of setting this up and co-ordinating. mainly to give dementia training to people so they know more about dementia in general and types of dementia in particular. any person or organisation eg. shopping centres can be dementia friendly which may stop the awkwardness in cafes when taking a PWD out for lunch. i just thought i would write about it as i didnt know anything about it until @MaNaAk mentioned it in her post. its happening in lots of the country. i will think on it and when i can cope better with things, then i will look into it more in depth. at the moment im frazzled but wondered if it would help others to know about it.
