More Dementia Friends in our Diocese… it’s growing!

Dementia Friends at St Joseph's

St Joseph’s, Wetherby are now the 4th Parish in our Diocese to start the process of becoming a recognised ‘dementia-friendly Parish’.

Thank you to all the people who attended ‘Becoming a Dementia-Friendly Parish’ session on Monday 18th July.   Growing Old Grace-fully was given such a warm welcome on a very warm evening, and 15 people each became a Dementia Friend.

A dementia-friendly Parish is one where people with dementia are understood, respected and supported and are confident they can contribute to Parish life.
