Sunrise of Eastbourne is seeking to improve the understanding of dementia in the area and dispel the myths surrounding it during a week of special events from Monday 3 to Friday, November 7.

Resources to Remember, a national campaign led by Sunrise Senior Living and held in conjunction with Alzheimer’s Society, aims to transform the public’s outlook on dementia.

On Wendesday, November 5 at 10.30am, a local Dementia Friends Champion will deliver a Dementia Friends session to help people understand a bit more about dementia and the small things they can do to help people living with memory loss. There will be a chance to share stories, insights and experience.

Resources to Remember supports Alzheimer’s Society’s and the Government’s pledge to create one million Dementia Friends by 2015. Dementia Friends are ordinary people who – by attending a Dementia Friends session – have gained a greater understanding of dementia and are able to turn that understanding into action.

Everyone who attends a Resources to Remember event will be given a free copy of Sunrise’s Memory Care Guide.
