Dementia Action Week Event at St Mary’s.
On Friday 24th May the Parish hosted a Free Market Place of Information and Services for people living with dementia and their carers. It was a great success, with some twenty organisations providing vital information for people living with dementia and their carers/ families.
LIVING WELL WITH DEMENTIA - DEMENTIA AWARENESS SESSION:
We had a wonderful turnout on the evening of Monday the 3rd September for the presentation/talk by dementia specialist nurse Serena Jones.
More than eighty people \ttended from all areas of our local community, the session proved very informative and enjoyable. The feedback has been extremely positive and we will continue in our efforts to become a ‘Dementia Friendly Parish.’
For those who could not attend, a copy of the presentation is available just click here.
Thank you to Serena Jones for sharing her time and expertise with us and to Sheila Nimmo, who worked tirelessly in preparing information packs for people to take away and to ensure the evening, was a complete success.
