A Dementia Friends session at Pakistan Red Crescent Society was conducted on August 25, 2023. The session will help the participants to gain a deeper understanding of dementia and how they can support those living with it in our community.
What is Dementia Friends?
Dementia Friends is an initiative that aims to raise awareness and change perceptions about dementia. It equips us with the knowledge to create a more inclusive and dementia-friendly society. By understanding the challenges faced by people with dementia, we can make small but impactful changes in our daily interactions to offer them the support and respect they deserve.
A Community Coming Together
The session at Pakistan Red Crescent Society brought together a diverse group of individuals, each eager to learn and contribute positively to our society. We discussed ways to improve communication, offer assistance, and create safe spaces for individuals with dementia. It’s heartwarming to see the community’s dedication to fostering a more compassionate and understanding environment.
How Can You Get Involved?
If you’re interested in making a difference and becoming a Dementia Friend, I highly recommend attending one of these sessions. The knowledge you gain and the connections you make are invaluable. Let’s work together to make our community more inclusive and supportive for everyone.
A big shoutout to the Pakistan Red Crescent Society for hosting this insightful session. Let’s continue spreading awareness and kindness.
