A dementia-friendly Christmas

A dementia-friendly Christmas

A dementia-friendly Christmas

We’ve gathered together information and advice from people affected by dementia, about changes they’ve made to help create a dementia-friendly Christmas.

Dementia can cause a lot of changes in your life – including how you celebrate Christmas. We wanted to hear from people with dementia to find out how they experienced the festive season.

The members of Ashford Dementia Support Group got together to talk about the very real difficulties that they can face at Christmastime: from the noise and confusion of parties, to feelings of exclusion during the festive preparations.

Using their words, we’ve created a short animated poem to get that vital message across.
