I commit to being kind

There are lots of simple things you could to do be kind, here are some ideas:

 

  • Be patient
    Have a bit more patience for others who may need more time – when paying in a supermarket, getting on the bus, everywhere.
  • Stay in touch
    If you know someone living with dementia, visit them. Or a postcard, letter, email or text can still let someone know you’re thinking of them. Brief and frequent is better than a long letter twice a year. Little things can mean a lot.
  • Be a good listener
    Make time to listen carefully and allow people to explain. Taking time, thinking about your body language and making eye contact can make a big difference to a conversation
