Communities Officer and Dementia Friends Champion in the Aylesbury Town Council, Benedicta Lasoye, delivered a Dementia Friends workshop to students on the Level 3 Certificate in Health and Social Care and Level 1 Diploma Introduction to Health, Social Care and Children and Young People’s Settings courses.

Students learned how they can help create a dementia friendly community by gaining knowledge and understanding of dementia, as well as how to communicate, support and include individuals in the community suffering with dementia.

Understanding the Bookcase Analogy

To demonstrate our students’ understanding of the Dementia Friends movement, we received a certificate, signed by the Mayor, and each student received a Dementia Friends badge. Our Level 1 students were able to meet the Mayor at the end of their workshop and had the opportunity to take photos with him.
