Labour’s Daniel Zeichner became a Dementia Friend this week at an event organised by the Alzheimer’s Society.

Almost 6,000 people in Cambridgeshire are living with dementia.

Daniel was given a course in dementia and how best to help people with the disease by the Alzheimer’s Society, before he was named a Dementia Friend.

A Dementia Friend learns what it’s like to live with dementia and then turns that know-how into action to help people with dementia feel understood and included in their community.

Daniel said he was delighted to become a Dementia Friend.

“Thank you to the staff and volunteers for an excellent, informative morning. I was particularly interested to learn more about the dementia cafe in Arbury.

“Labour has pledged to integrate health and social care and make society more ‘dementia-friendly’.

“I want to do everything I can to help people living with dementia in Cambridge.”
