Dementia Friends gives people an understanding of dementia, and the small things you can do to make a difference. Want to learn more about dementia and how you can support people living with dementia in your community? Then come along to a dementia awareness session - ‘Become a Dementia Friend’, on Wednesday 9th March, from 6pm to 7pm at the Lawns Care Home,  1 Gleave Road, Whitnash, CV31 2JS.

This session will be followed by an open meeting, from 7pm to 7.30pm, to discuss the launch of the Forget-Me-Not Club, a new Dementia Café, which will also be at The Lawns, starting in April.  This will be a 6 month pilot scheme to support Whitnash people living with dementia, as well as their carers.
