Dementia Friends: Champion Training
Become a Dementia Friends Champion and learn how to lead Dementia Friends information sessions. This training will equip you with the knowledge and activities needed to facilitate a Dementia Friends Information Session with community members.
A Dementia Friends Champion is trained through the state-wide initiative ACT on Alzheimer’s (www.actonalz.org) to facilitate a one-hour Dementia Friends Information Session for friends, family, colleagues and the wider community. The goal of the Dementia Friends Information Session is to help community members understand dementia and the small things they can do to make a difference for people living with dementia. Dementia Friends is an initiative developed by the Alzheimer’s Society in the United Kingdom and was piloted by St. Paul Neighborhoods ACT on Alzheimer’s whose goal is to make St. Paul a dementia friendly community.
