Health and Social Care students recently became Dementia Friends, which gave them the chance to learn what it is like to live with dementia and turn this understanding into action.
The students developed knowledge and awareness about the different types of dementia and how to support people living with the disease.
The session linked to their placement and course and also to awareness and tolerance within society. All students and staff signed up to Dementia Friends and received a Dementia Friends badge.
Danielle Simpson, Hartlepool Sixth Form Lecturer in Children’s Play, Learning and Development and Health and Social Care said:
“We all had a fantastic, informative day and I am so proud of the students for taking part in this. The training has developed students’ knowledge and awareness of Dementia support immensely and will enable them to use this knowledge to support others in their community.”
Hartlepool Sixth Form College signed the pledge to become a College of Sanctuary.
