Small Acts, Big Impact! The Burlington Hosts Successful Dementia Friends Seminar

Boutique Care Homes recently hosted a Dementia Friend's information session at their award-winning care home, The Burlington, in Surrey. The event aimed to educate the community on the importance of becoming Dementia Friendly and supporting those living with dementia.

The information session was led by Alison Hesketh, a Dementia Ambassador and the Director of Time Finders. Participants learned about the various aspects of living with dementia and the small things that people can do to make a difference. The session covered topics such as the signs and symptoms of dementia, communication strategies, and the different ways that dementia affects people.

“Brilliant to be back at the Burlington, Shepperton delivering another dementia friends session,” said Alison Hesketh, Dementia Ambassador. “A lovely interactive evening and thank you to everyone for coming.” Her positive feedback highlights the importance of educating the community on dementia, and the success of the event at The Burlington emphasises the impact of such initiatives on the lives of those living with the condition.

Dementia Friends is a national initiative that aims to change the way people think, act, and talk about dementia. The initiative offers free information sessions that provide participants with an understanding of what it’s like to live with dementia and the small things that people can do to make a difference. By becoming a Dementia Friend, individuals can make a positive impact on the lives of those living with dementia.
