Dementia Friendly Church — resources for us to use
As we have signed up to be a Dementia Friendly Church, we now have access to some excellent on-line material from Dementia Friends, an Alzheimer's Society initiative.
These short video clips are very informative and give helpful tips and suggestions of ways in which we can help in ordinary and everyday situations.
If you'd like to watch these either on your own, or with a friend or two, please contact Keith for the code that you will need in order to access this material.
You can access the Dementia Friends website from the Wantage Methodist Church website under the heading "Our Church"
From there you will see a heading "Get Involved", click on this and go to "organisations". On the left hand side of the page you will see the heading "organisations" and within that "watch our videos for organisations". When you click on this, a form will pop up asking you to enter the code and the number of people watching the video clip with you, and your post code etc. When you have done this, click on "submit" and you will have access to these excellent video clips.
We hope you will find them helpful and useful. If you have any questions, please contact Keith, who will be only too happy to help you.
