Many people in minority communities don’t have enough knowledge of dementia. They believe that dementia is an old age thing, something that is normal and is supposed to happen to everyone getting old. People who are diagnosed with dementia in these communities are not taken care of well enough. Their family members and friends don’t know the support that is available for them. This project also helps to transform minority communities into dementia friendly ones.
The Dementia Awareness project helps them to have a better understanding of what dementia is all about and information on the support that is available for people living with dementia. At the moment we are holding awareness in Bolton area.
