There is a very simple and easy way forward that’s also very enlightening – you can become a Dementia Friend at an information session to be held at Wrexham Library on Wednesday, August 7, between 1 and 2pm. The session is free and will help you understand how you can be more supportive in the future.

Even the smallest actions can make a difference and many staff here at the council have attended these sessions and have found them to be extremely useful and practical.
