Stacey Withington has recently become a Dementia Friends Champion volunteer with the Alzheimer’s Society. Dementia Friends is a Social movement group designed to inspire people to take positive action to support those living with Dementia. Dementia Friends aim to change people’s perceptions of dementia and transform the way the nation thinks, acts and talks about the condition.

Stacey will be running sessions for her colleagues at Hardington Hogg who will all become Dementia Friends. Stacey regularly meets with families who are affected by Dementia and intends to raise awareness to help others understand the condition. She plans to show ways in which we can help those affected lead a better quality of life, by taking action, no matter how big or small that action may be.

If you wish to find out about the next Dementia Friends session or to request a Dementia Friends Session in or around Alnwick, please contact Jackie at Hardington Hogg on 01665 605566 otherwise, please visit www.dementiafriends.org.uk for more information about the initiative.
