Dementia Friendly

Dementia awareness training for business and services

 

Help make Greenwich a dementia-friendly borough

There are over 2,000 people living with dementia in Greenwich. Each person with dementia may have at least one family carer who supports them every day.
 
A dementia-friendly borough helps people with dementia and their carers to live independently for as long as possible.
 
‘Dementia Friendly Greenwich’ helps businesses adapt their services to be more inclusive. It offers local organisations free training and practical support to make changes that can help people with Dementia.
 

What are the benefits?

  • Attract more customers and increase customer satisfaction
  • Have a business that is an understanding place for people with dementia
  • Receive free Dementia Awareness training for staff
  • Get borough-wide and national dementia friendly recognition
  • Receive a window sticker to show your service is Dementia Friendly.

Several local organisations have already become Dementia Friendly. These include Oxleas NHS, leisure centres and libraries, pharmacies and Greenwich Picturehouse.
