Think Active are supporting the creation of Dementia Friendly sports and physical activity clubs, groups and facilities to enable those living with dementia to live well and remain independent for as long as possible.
One in fourteen people over 65 are living with Dementia, it’s more prevalent than people realise. However, it is possible to be able to live well with Dementia. Being active can not only help prevent the onset of Dementia but can also help someone living with Dementia to continue to live well.
In order to sign up to the Think Active Dementia Friendly Commitment your club or group will need to do the following:
- Host a dementia friend’s information session at your club.
- Identify a Dementia Advocate, or a small working group, from within your organisation to lead on making your organisation Dementia Friendly.
- Develop a plan of actions your organisation is committed to undertaking to become more Dementia Friendly
- Use the resource pack to promote your organisation as being committed to be Dementia Friendly.
