Would you like to know more about Dementia?
There are currently 850,000 people with dementia in the UK, with numbers set to soar to 2 million by 2051.
One person will develop dementia every three minutes.
It effects so many more people though; in particular the loved ones of those diagnosed. If you are not affected by it now, chances are you will soon know someone who is.
Dementia Friendly East Riding (DFER) is a charitable organisation which aims to raise awareness and understanding of dementia, and provide activities to support people living with dementia.
DFER is pleased to work in partnership with HCST, and is happy to assist any HCST members and organisations with training and advice on how we can all become dementia friendly.
More information is available on their website.
