Dementia Friends @ Trivallis

DF badge  DF brochure

Staff working in our Care and Support services volunteer as Dementia Friend Champions to help encourage others to learn more about dementia – a condition that affects 850,000 people living in the UK.

The champions are trained volunteers who deliver information sessions around Rhondda Cynon Taff to spread the message that ‘you can live well with dementia.’ It’s important we help to make sure people have a better understanding of what it is and how it affects others.

The sessions last no longer than an hour and provide the chance for people to learn more about the condition as well as what they can do to create more dementia friendly communities.

Anyone can be involved and become a Dementia Friend, it’s easy to sign up and get involved. For more information visit the Dementia Friends official website.

Our sessions are free and are delivered in our sheltered housing schemes. If you’d like to come along to learn more about dementia, please contact Claire Overd on 01443 494506.
