Chorley Dementia Action Group

Chorley Dementia Action Group is a collective of individuals, services and organisations who are all passionate about taking action to make Chorley a dementia friendly borough.

So what do we mean by Dementia?

Here is a brief introduction to help us all understand.

This is a non-scientific explanation.

a) how memories are stored in the brain

b) how these memories/feelings can be affected when dementia is involved and

c) how your understanding of this can help you to support someone with dementia, enabling them to live well.

Please take a look at the video below from the Alzheimer’s Society who explain this further.
