Wembley Stadium is going dementia-friendly.
Tell me more!
Alzheimer’s Society has come up with a scheme encouraging stadiums and arenas to become more accessible for people with dementia.
Wembley has jumped in with both feet, training stewards on dementia awareness and overhauling its website to make it more accessible.
Additionally, they are making chaperones more easily available to those suffering from all kinds of disabilities, including invisible ones.
They are joining a large number of other stadiums and event hosts who are making the change based on advice from the Alzheimer’s Society.
