Dementia Friendly Churches

Dementia Friendly churches are inclusive, accessible and community focused. Working towards being more Dementia Friendly is considering how the church welcomes people with dementia and their carers. It is about how people living with dementia are supported and helped to worship in spite of the common challenges that dementia brings.
