Dementia Friends 12 - 2pm
Alzheimer’s Society’s Dementia Friends programme aims to transform the way the nation thinks, acts and talks about dementia. This session will provide easy to understand information about dementia, including useful analogies and five key messages. Parallel sessions will be offered in Welsh and English, so you can learn in your language of choice.
