North East Dementia Friendly Communities Resource Guide

Involving local communities in meeting the spiritual needs of people with dementia across care settings in the North East

This joint publication by Northumbria University and North East Dementia Alliance demonstrate some approaches to meeting the spiritual needs of people with dementia.

It contains a range of information including guides, websites and film clips. The case studies featured in this publication provide examples of how individuals and communities in the North East of England have made a significant impact in supporting people with dementia and their carers. It is also an interesting read for other communities which may be inspired to consider what could be done to improve local support.
