Dementia Friendly Church

We started off “Dementia Awareness Week” in May 2018 by launching of our “Being a Dementia Friendly Church” event at Westbury Baptist Church.

It was well supported with interesting speakers, including Rev. Dr. Margaret Goodall and Subitha Bagrihathan.

Examples of good practice were also shared and a resource pack available for those churches wishing to begin the process.

Feedback would indicate that attendees (from all denominations) found the day really useful, informative, as well as challenging.

Dementia Friendly Church was held live in 2019 and 2020.

Dementia Friendly Church Resource Pack

In December 2020, we held a Being a Dementia Friendly Church in a Pandemic webinar. You can view the recording of the main speakers here. You can also download the slides from the webinar.

We are likely to host more webinars in 2021. If you would like to be notified about this please email us on office@bdaa.org.uk.
