Dementia Friends is a global public awareness program that helps everyone in a community to learn a little about dementia and how it affects people, and the simple things that we can all do to make a difference. To learn more, watch this 2-minute video at https://www.dementiafriendsma.org/node/127

  • When is the training: Tuesday, September 14, from 1pm to 3:30 pm
  • Format: On line virtual session via Zoom
  • Cost: The training is free and open to the public.
  • Topics: During this training, you will take part in a Dementia Friends information session and be counted as a part of the growing number of “Dementia Friends” worldwide. This training will also equip you with the knowledge and materials needed to become a volunteer “Champion,” which means that you will be able to facilitate your own virtual or in-person Dementia Friends Information Session with members of your community. High school students and adults are able to become trained as Champions.
