Frankham Becomes Dementia Friends in Support of Dementia Awareness Week

14th May 2024

It’s Dementia Action Week.

Around 900,000 people suffer with dementia in the UK and every 3 minutes someone in the UK develops dementia. This is one of the biggest health challenges of our time.

Frankham Group has signed up to the Alzheimer’s Society Dementia Friends initiative, every member of staff interacting with the public will be undertaking training to become a Dementia Friend.

Being a Dementia Friend means that we can play our part in supporting people suffering with this condition. Our goal is for our staff to recognise the signs, to be able to adapt their approach accordingly and identify additional support requirements.
