Lunch & Speaker Sue D Martin from Dementia Friends
30 August @ 12:30 pm - 2:15 pm
My name is Sue Martin. After a 27 year career in financial services I now work as a Director of Community Relations at Sunrise Senior Living in Banstead and have been with the company for just over 4.5 years. I work as part of the Family Team and deal with residents or their families before they move in. My role also involves arranging events, informative talks and networking with the local business community. I am joining you at your lunch in my capacity as a Dementia Champion for the Alzheimer’s Society to deliver a Dementia Friends Information Session.
The Alzheimer’s Society’s Dementia Friends programme is the biggest ever initiative to change people’s perceptions of dementia. It aims to transform the way the nation thinks, acts and talks about the condition.
At the end of each session members will be invited to become a Dementia Friend and commit to one action to try and improve the lives of people living with Dementia. This can be a very small action or one much larger and I will give examples as part of my talk.
