Dementia Friends in the community

Our Equalities Committee have been putting their recent training into practice. Our local community Nursing Home was approached to see if we could support them in any way. All the students were keen to get involved and thought it would link with the up coming Dementia Awareness week beginning 20th May. 

Everyone thought it would be fitting to try and dress up for the occasion, so costumes were sourced from staff and Grassington Players kindly loaned some beautiful vintage style dresses etc. On our arrival, we were introduced to residents on memory lane and we chatted about things past and present. The residents were keen to hear from us and the students enjoyed learning about past events, jobs and life in general. It was a great experience for the students and residents alike and all are keen to make this a regular feature as part of our work in the community.
