Why? We’ll focus together on dementia and our Diocese-wide
dementia-friendly churches network. There are lots of good reasons to come:
 I’m affected by dementia.
 I know people at church and in our community affected by dementia.
 I’d like to be able to stay in step with people with dementia.
 We’d like to become a more dementia-friendly church.
 Dementia’s not talked about much in our church.
 I’d like to know a bit more about dementia and dementia-friendly church.
