How this cause brings people in the community together

The worker will engage with communities to develop a programme of additional support, including supporting people, community groups and businesses to become dementia friends. A dementia friend is somebody that learns about dementia so that they know how to help people with dementia. The community is then able to support people with dementia to live at home, for longer, with their loved ones.
