The Dementia Friendly Churches Initiative
The Dementia Friendly Churches Initiative offers a range of services / resources to support churches to become more accessible and inclusive for people with dementia and their carers.
How we can help your church
Dementia Friendly Churches Initiative offers a number of services:
1. An audit to assess how dementia friendly your church currently is and develop an action plan.
2. Mentoring – on-going mentoring and advice for your church or organisation.
3. A one off ‘Dementia Friends’ training session for your church or organisation.
4. A four part series of training/workshops for your church/ organisation.
To see how Dementia Friendly Churches works in practice, watch this video documenting our work with the Diocese of Lichfield. Livability, along with a number of other local organisations, delivered a series of workshops to over 25 churches in the diocese to support them to become more dementia friendly:
