Dementia Friends Champion, Miranda Morgan, Home Manager of Moore Place spent the morning this week delivering Dementia Friends Sessions to 51 year six children from Esher Church Primary School. The session was aimed at giving information and making the children aware of people living with dementia within their area. The children were left with five key messages: dementia is not a natural part of ageing; dementia is caused by diseases of the brain; it's not just about losing your memory; it's possible to live well with dementia; and, there's more to a person than the dementia.
Miranda Morgan said 'I was so thrilled to speak to so many children about Dementia Friends and to explain to them the importance of becoming a Dementia Friend. The children were genuinely interested with amazing questions and some real life stories from their families, it was a privilege to meet them'.
