Welcome to Dementia Friends
Year 6 have had Dementia Training this morning. Today we learned that dementia is a serious situation that usually occurs in older aged people.
We did two interesting activites about how hard it is to cope with dementia. At the end of the session, we had a chance to become a dementia friend and got a badge to show that we cared.
