Dementia is everyone's business! Help us make Lewisham a Dementia friendly community

Come along to our free dementia awareness event on Monday 18 May, 10am - 4pm at Civic Suite, Lewisham Town Hall, Catford Road, SE6 4RU.   

In Lewisham there are about 2,120 people living with dementia and this is likely to increase in the years to come.  Over two thirds of these are living in the community and are frequent customers in our local businesses and services.  People living with dementia often lose confidence in themselves and worry about how they will cope with everyday life.  Families and Carers can equally feel overwhelmed, lonely and worried about their loved ones.

People with dementia can be supported by doing some very simple things. There will be a variety of workshops and training sessions that will help you and make our community more dementia friendly and learn about the support that is already available to people with dementaia and their carers.
