Bluebird Care Totton are now Dementia Champions!
Bluebird Care Totton are now Dementia Champions! We’ve signed up, completed the Dementia Champion training and now we’re ready to recruit Dementia Friends! By attending our Dementia Inform sessions, you too can become a Dementia Friend.
If you’re interested in learning more about dementia and how you can help those in your community, why not organise a Dementia Inform session with our Dementia Champions? We’re available to visit your business, school or community group and share our knowledge! Dementia Friends exist to give as many people as possible an understanding of what dementia is and what we can do to help those living with it.
