Dementia Friendly Church

Livability and Alzheimer’s Society are delighted to announce the publication of this new resource to support those living with dementia. Created through the partnership of two national charities, Livability and Alzheimer’s Society, Developing a Dementia-Friendly Church is a practical and much-needed guide for churches and faith communities

Properly equipped, churches and other faith communities can offer a welcoming, inclusive and safe place. Developing a Dementia-Friendly Church describes what dementia is, its impact and explores the ways in which churches can offer support. It is suitable not only for faith communities who are considering becoming dementia friendly, but also those who have already embarked upon this course.

Published to coincide with Dementia Awareness Week, this comprehensive resource has been informed by consultations and focus groups with church leaders and congregations. Following the guidance offered here, churches can offer a lifeline to those living with dementia and help them to stay connected to their spiritual and community life.
