On Thursday 6 December, Debbie Goodsell from Gracewell Healthcare came in to Frome College to deliver a Dementia Friends course to the Year 12 Health & Social Care students. This means that we now have certified Dementia Friends in the College.

It entails raising awareness and understanding through action for people living with dementia, and those affected by it. These students have gained understanding of how dementia is perceived and experienced by people. They have also gained the understanding of how to support someone living with dementia to some degree. Most of all, they have built their own characters by reaching out to the broader community as a whole.

Wendy Day, Teacher of Health & Social Care, said: “I am very proud of this group of students. They have been so inspiring how well they approached this difficult area, and I am sure they will be a real asset in supporting people who need it. Well done to all of them!”
