Become a Dementia Friend

Become a Dementia Friend

Dementia Friendly Tempe is hosting Dementia Friends Arizona training sessions at various dates and locations, and is looking for local people to join in learning about dementia and helping people who are living with it in Tempe. There is no cost to attend.

Dementia Friends is the biggest ever initiative to change people’s perceptions of dementia. It aims to transform the way the community thinks, talks and acts about the disease. A Dementia Friends training will help people learn about dementia and the small ways to help. From telling friends about the program to visiting someone living with dementia, every action counts.

Wednesday, August 2, 10 – 11 a.m., Changing Hands Book Store, 6428 S McClintock Dr, Tempe 85283

Wednesday, August 2, 7 – 8 p.m., Changing Hands Book Store, 6428 S McClintock Dr, Tempe 85283

Wednesday, August 9, 1 – 2:30 p.m., Tempe Public Library, 3500 S. Rural Road, Tempe 85282

I invite and encourage you to attend one of these information sessions.  You will meet others who are also interested or touched by dementia.

Please contact us to register for a session.  Call 602-839-6850 or email BAIFCS@bannerhealth.com

Testimonials

“Caregiving has pushed me to do things outside of my comfort zone, and I’ve embraced that nurturing part of myself that I didn’t know I had.”

Mary lives with late stage Alzheimer’s so Patty spends about 9 hours daily to assist her with things like bathing, cooking, dressing, and going to the doctor’s office for appointments. Patty takes Mary to an Adult Day Center three days a week through the Arizona Caregiver Coalition so that she can enjoy respite. Mary loved it at the center and made friends. It became something that she truly looked forward to every week.
