Radis Community Care has successfully recruited 1000 Dementia Friends.

Dementia Friends is an Alzheimer’s Society initiative to improve awareness and understanding of the condition. Radis first registered with the scheme in support of last year’s World Alzheimer’s Day and has been encouraging staff to become Dementia Friends ever since.

By registering with the Dementia Friends scheme, Radis has access to best practice guidance, videos and other resources specially created by the Alzheimer’s Society and has made these resources accessible to staff via its online training system.

Whilst Radis colleagues support lots of people with dementia everyday, Dementia Friends isn’t just for people working in adult social care – it is open to anyone who wants to help people with dementia in their community.
