Raising awareness about dementia, the difficulties it poses in daily life, and how to help those experiencing those difficulties, is a core element of building our dementia friendly community. So our Dementia Champions have been busy bringing Dementia Friends sessions to several churches in our area.
Holy Faith Church
The first congregation to become Dementia Friendly —perhaps the first in Michigan —was Holy Faith Church, the same church where the Dementia Friendly initiative got its start in early summer 2019.
Bethel United Church of Christ
Not long after Holy Faith, congregation members of Bethel United Church of Christ became Dementia Friends.
