Dementia Friends

Date: November 29, 2017

On Thursday 23rd November we held a workshop for people in our congregation to learn more about befriending those living with Alzheimer’s or other forms of dementia.

Sister Peggy Ennis (of the Sisters of Mercy) came to lead the workshop, and gave us the benefit of many years of experience and training as a therapist and counsellor, and of living alongside and caring for older sisters who experienced dementia.

We ended the workshop armed with plenty of information and ready to make one change or take one action in our lives to get in touch with or help someone living with dementia.
