Doing more for people living with Dementia – A whole community approach in Brent

Cllr Krupesh Hirani with Dianne CampbellIn Brent, we are working with the Community to make our area a Dementia Friendly Borough. We were recently featured on London Live where I gave an interview on the issue. Dementia is not just about providing core services but for me it is about a whole community approach on the issue to make sure that everyone is aware of the issue and is mindful of Dementia when they are going about their everyday lives; be it going shopping in a supermarket or queuing to be served at a bank cashier.

This video here explains more has a real life experience from Dianne Campbell who was diagnosed with Dementia at the age of 44.
