Bracknell and Ascot CCG are proud to support the Dementia Friend campaign which is aiming to mobilise people to play their part in tackling one of the biggest health issues facing the region.
Becoming a Dementia Friend involves finding out more about what dementia is, and the small things they can do to make a big difference to a person living with the condition. People can live well with dementia, it just takes a little love and care from those around them.
The campaign is being run by Public Health England and the Alzheimer’s Society and aims to show it will take a whole society response to enable people with the condition to live well.
The initiative forms part of the Prime Minister’s Challenge on Dementia, and builds on commitments declared at the 2013 G8 Dementia Summit, which included a call to improve the quality of life for people living with the condition.
