Objectives

Know Dementia is a small charity based in West Sussex and we support families affected by dementia.  We do this by providing one to one support, supporting the development of dementia friendly communities and putting on events that support both the person diagnosed and their carer.  Our aim is to help people live to the best of their ability in the community with their loved ones.  We believe in helping families to maintain fulfilling relationships even though they are dealing with a frightening diagnosis of dementia.

Activities

The charity runs events for carers and the person diagnosed with dementia such as:

- a community jazz, swing and blues choir

-  Sporting Moments providing two hours every week to maintain health and well-being

- Green Moments providing the opportunity to work in a community garden

developing dementia friendly communities by running Dementia Friends sessions and being part of local Sussex Dementia Action Alliances
