DFK – Building Dementia Friendly Communities
A message to all Community Groups and Organisations – join us.
We are working to equip organisations and groups to support people living with dementia within their own communities
As a community group or organisation, or even a business, catering for people in Keighley and surrounding areas, You will increasingly be interacting with or working with people living with dementia, whether that be as a community group, organisation or business. You may not even know it right now; it may be hidden. Do you know how best to support them? How to communicate effectively? How to make sure your group is a welcoming place for them and not confusing?
We want to support other organisations to become more ‘dementia friendly,’ equipping them with knowledge and resources to support people affected by dementia in their communities.
Dementia Friendly Keighley (DFK) was set up in 2014 for the purpose of supporting people affected by dementia in Keighley and district. Over that time we have engaged with hundrends of people living with dementia and their families. Through our new ‘community area’ we want to share our resources and experiences with other organisations and groups in the area, to help them to become more inclusive of people living with dementia and their families. We want to help organisations to help people with dementia to feel comfortable in venues where activities take place that they may wish to join’.
So we’ve launched our new COMMUNITY AREA
