Tips for…
Friendships & peer support – Keeping friendships going

I have over 20 regular online chat partners across the world, which has helped me through Covid. I don’t really want it to end!

The best way is to tell the world. It has opened up so much support.

Be honest with your friends. (Watch Young Dementia UK’s film here).

When I arrange to meet my friends, they text me with the arrangements, so that I don’t enter them wrongly into my diary.

I use ‘MoonPig’ to send online personalised cards or small hampers to friends.

Keep a list of go-to people who can help with specific issues e.g. repairs, technology issues.

Do you have a 'Tip' you would like to share?
