Dementia Friendly Churches

Both Churches, Holymoorside and St Andrew's, are striving to become Dementia Friendly Churches, where those living with Dementia and their Carers are welcome and find the Church catering for their needs.

For more information regarding Dementia Friendly Churches visit the Livability website.

Every human being is made in the image of God, loved and cherished by Him, including people with dementia.

What a Dementia Friendly Church is like:

  • It welcomes and includes people with dementia and their family carers
  • It understands their physical, emotional and spiritual needs
  • It is accessible to people with dementia
  • It finds ways to engage with and care for people affected by dementia at home and in residential and care settings
  • It works with other local organisations to develop a dementia friendly community
