[ARCHIVED] Become a Dementia Friendly Champion in Your Community!

Don’t miss this opportunity to learn some basic facts about Dementia and the skills to share your new awareness with others. This is an easy and informative Zoom training that can benefit everyone in the community and allow us all to be more inclusive of our neighbors, friends, and family who are living with dementia.

Become a Dementia Friendly Champion in Your Community! 


Dementia Friends Massachusetts is offering three different dates for a free Zoom training that will give you the knowledge and materials you need to share awareness about dementia! 

Dementia Friends is a global public awareness program that helps everyone in a community to learn a little about dementia and how it affects people, and the simple things that we can all do to make a difference. To learn more, watch this 2-minute video

During this 2 ½ hour training, you will take part in a Dementia Friends information session, and be counted as a part of the growing number of “Dementia Friends” worldwide. This training will also equip you with the knowledge and materials needed to become a volunteer “Champion,” which means that you will be able to facilitate your own virtual or in-person Dementia Friends Information Session with members of your community. High school students and adults are able to become trained as Champions.

The training will be held in English. However, Dementia Friends Massachusetts materials are available in Arabic, Chinese, Haitian Creole, Khmer, Portuguese, Russian, Spanish, Vietnamese, for those who are multilingual and would like to lead an information session in one of these languages.
