How You Can Help
It is important to encourage awareness of dementia in the town so that people (e.g. business owners, shop keepers, bus drivers, taxi drivers etc) who come into contact with a person with dementia are confident to deal with anything that may arise.
The Hastings and St Leonards Dementia Action Alliance are asking for representatives from businesses to become “Dementia Friends”, this will involve attending a 45 minute session that will explain the possible scenarios you may encounter when you meet a person with dementia and will demonstrate how to provide reassurance and support.
Please join Hastings and St Leonards Dementia Action Alliance and help them make this happen.
