MP supports Alzheimer’s Society to become ‘Dementia Friend’

Mansfield’s MP Ben Bradley and his team have undertaken training from the Alzheimer’s Society to become ‘Dementia Friendly’. This training encourages staff and volunteers to adopt techniques and ways of thinking that can help those who are affected by dementia.

Discussing the training, Ben said it was “a really worthwhile thing to do. You come in with a lot of preconceptions about Alzheimer’s and dementia, and it really made you stop and think, and see how simple little changes can make such a difference.”

“Because my office is open for drop in’s 5 days a week, we do get a lot of people come in that are or have been affected by Alzheimer’s or Dementia in one form or another, so it’s really good for me and my staff to have this.”

The training was provided by the Alzheimer’s Society, and is available to other organisations.
