A dementia-friendly community is a city, town or village where people with dementia are understood, respected and supported.
Communities who wish to be recognised as dementia-friendly can register on Alzheimer’s Society’s Dementia Friendly Communities recognition process. These communities will be considered to be ‘working to become dementia friendly’ and may use the ‘Working to become Dementia Friendly’ symbol (‘the symbol’) as long as they are part of this process.
Bollington is now part of this process!
We’ll add more detail when available
We are hoping St Oswald’s may be used as a regular support meeting venue for carers and sufferers in future
