The Alzheimer's Society is launching its successful Dementia Friends initiative in Wales. The scheme has already been set up in England and is set for launch in Wales at an event at the Senedd on February 19.
The Dementia Friends scheme aims to give people an understanding of dementia and the small things they can do that can make a difference to people living with dementia - from helping someone find the right bus to spreading the word about dementia in their community and even online.
The Alzheimer's Society's aim is to get 4,000 people in Wales to attend a Dementia Friends session by 2015. It's hoped this will lead people to turning their better understanding into practical action to help someone living with dementia in their community.
