Becoming a Dementia Friend
My names Beatrice and I became a dementia friend.
My mum was a nurse but then became a teacher at Southend University and had to teach the students about becoming a dementia friend. So, she practised on me and my dad.
To pass on my knowledge, I did a presentation to my class (Arctic 5).
Being a dementia friend means I can help people with dementia and keep them safe from bullies and people who don’t understand dementia. In the future I hope to teach others about dementia and get people helping people with dementia.
