Today, the Alzheimer’s Society have published a new guide in their series promoting Dementia Friendly Communities. It is a guide for cinemas who want to develop Dementia Friendly Screenings. As we know, people affected by dementia often have to give up the things they love due to inaccessible and unsupportive environments. This includes visiting a cinema.
Cinemas have an important part to play in tackling the social and economic impact of dementia, by allowing people living with dementia to continue to participate in entertainment. The new cinema guide is designed to help cinemas improve their accessibility and become more dementia-friendly, an you can download it from their website here.
