Nettleton & Moortown WI members joined up as Dementia Friends at their January meeting, with the help of Catherine Wylie.
Catherine explained dementia is a disease of the brain. It is not a natural part of aging nor just about memory loss.
With medical help and community support it is possible to live well with dementia and take an active role in life.
So with Dementia Friends, the WI members are looking to help people with dementia feel included in their community.
