BAN­GOR CHRIS­TIAN SPIRITUALIST YS­BYTY Gwynedd is the first acute hos­pi­tal in Wales to re­ceive of­fi­cial recog­ni­tion of work­ing to be­come de­men­tia friendly.

The hos­pi­tal has been recog­nised by the Alzheimer’s So­ci­ety as part of its work to recog­nise or­gan­i­sa­tions and in­di­vid­u­als sup­port­ing aware­ness around de­men­tia.

Over 300 mem­bers of staff are now ‘De­men­tia Friends’ at Ys­byty Gwynedd, which is only the sec­ond acute hos­pi­tal in the UK to re­ceive this recog­ni­tion from the Alzheimer’s So­ci­ety.

The de­men­tia team be­came vol­un­teers for the Alzheimer’s So­ci­ety in 2015 and have since car­ried out a range of ac­tiv­i­ties and ‘de­men­tia friends’ train­ing ses­sions to help staff un­der­stand more about de­men­tia and how it af­fects pa­tients and their fam­i­lies.
