We are Dementia Friends!
Talent Match is part of a wider charity called Support Staffordshire.
We had an away/team day with Support Staffordshire last week, where we had Dementia Friends training.
It was great to have some myths busted about Dementia and to learn more about how we can offer a helping hand to somebody experiencing difficulties.
Some of us after the training:
- Dementia is not a natural part of the ageing process.
- Dementia is caused by diseases of the brain.
- It is not just about losing your memory.
- It’s possible to live well with it.
- There is more to the person than the dementia.
