Dementia Friendly Carols 21b

Dementia Friendly Churches

We’re changing the conversation about dementia, reducing stigma and embarrassment and assuring people living with dementia that they can remain active in our parishes. Adaptations make our buildings more dementia-friendly, more hospitable and welcoming to everyone.

Over the last few years we have hosted Dementia Friendly Carol Services, which welcome everyone but which are especially for people living with, and caring for, those with dementia. These have been supported by the whole community, with churches coming together. Even the Royal Navy has helped by sending sailors from the local barracks, in uniform, to act as stewards. We have also helped support the establishment of a dementia service in Torbay
