The Synexus Lancashire Clinic is now a Dementia Friend
On Friday 16th February Councillor Karen Walton visited the site to facilitate the training session.
Each person that attended now has a Dementia Friend Badge and walked away understanding the 5 key messages
• Dementia is not a natural part of ageing
• Dementia is caused by diseases of the brain
• Dementia is not just about losing your memory-it can affect thinking, communicating and doing everyday tasks.
• It’s possible to live well with dementia
• There’s more to a person than the dementia
