Dementia Action Week in Worthing sees Dementia Friendly Worthing launch a video for schools’ assemblies
We have a host of events, virtual and otherwise, during Dementia Action Week 17-23 May, 2021. The most innovative of these is a pre-recorded assembly for children in local primary schools.
Dementia Friendly Worthing has been working with pupils from Our Lady of Sion School to ensure the video is interesting and informative for their age group and relevant to PSHE on the curriculum.
Any school is welcome to watch and use the video which is available on You Tube. This was put together during lockdown and runs for just 14 minutes, an ideal length for any lesson. The video enhances children’s understanding of how people can live well with dementia in the community. It includes an introduction by Worthing Town Crier, Bob Smytherman, and explains through interviews, facts, a bookcase analogy and messages from children who are proud to be dementia friends.
If you are a local Worthing school, and would like to arrange for your pupils to have a free, one hour interactive session delivered by a trained volunteer and Dementia Friend Champion, then please get in touch with Lynsey at firstname.lastname@example.org These sessions can be delivered in person or via Zoom dependent upon situations and preferences. During the session, your staff and pupils will learn about dementia and how they can help create dementia-friendly communities.
Anyone of any age can be a Dementia Friend and every action counts towards making the next generation dementia-friendly.
