YOUR Kids in YOUR Dementia Friendly Community

DF

Dementia can create some very challenging situations for families and social groups, and it can be hard to know how much to explain to children and young people. It is natural to want to protect children from difficult or confusing situations, but it is important to explain what is going on. There are a number of reasons for this.


• Children and young people are often aware of difficult atmospheres and tensions even when they haven’t been told the facts, so it can be reassuring for them to understand what the problem is.
• Although the news may be distressing, children and young people may find it a relief to know that the person’s behaviour is part of their dementia and is not directed at them.
• It can be more upsetting for the child or young person to find out later than to cope with the reality of what is happening. If a child is not told, they may find it difficult later to trust what someone close to them says.
• Seeing how people around them cope with difficult situations helps young people learn valuable skills about dealing with tough and distressing situations, and being able to manage painful emotions.

Continuing with our aim to increase dementia awareness in and around Wrexham Football Club, we have secured the services of an Alzheimer’s Society Dementia Friends Champion for the next half term. She will be available to deliver awareness sessions to children and young people in three age brackets. Each session is specifically designed and age appropriate. The sessions will be held at The Racecourse on Wednesday April 12th and the three age categories are 6-8 years, 9-11 years and over 11s. If you would like your child to attend one of these sessions please email Stuart Roberts on This email address is being protected from spambots.

The sessions will require your child to have a parent or guardian to attend and will last approximately one hour. Timings will depend on numbers attending and will be confirmed closer to the date.
