KINDA dementia


The KINDA Project

KINDA is a quick way of saying Knighton Initiative for Dementia Action, a local community project helping to change the way people think, talk and act about dementia. As a local group we are aiming to raise awareness of dementia and help Knighton and nearby communities become dementia friendly. The group is open to all, including individuals, businesses and other local organisation. We want as many people as possible to know more about dementia and the many small and simple ways we can all make life more friendly for people living with dementia and their carers. Your encouragement and support will help people living with dementia to remain part of the community, to be more active in the local area and to live more enjoyable and fulfilled lives.

Check out the resources below to find out more about how you can help and / or be involved. You can also join our Facebook group to help raise local awareness, follow us on Twitter (see the feed on the left.)
