Dementia Awareness Week (DAW)

I recently started working at the Alzheimer’s Society 2 days a week as their Dementia Action Alliance Co-Ordinator for Ealing – a great opportunity to support a fantastic team who are working to make Ealing a dementia friendly community. As part of DAW we visited the Southall Town Hall and spoke to the women at the film group there about dementia and answered questions about memory loss and local services.

In addition to this I went with Pathways to the launch of the new Liss Dementia CafĂ© where I spoke to people about planning ahead for dementia. They had Singing for the Brain and massage for people with dementia plus stands run by Alzheimer’s Society and St James’ Place Wealth Management.

Today People Management magazine printed an Opinion piece we had collaborated on which highlights the work of our charity and that of Dementia Carer Friendly Workplaces. To read more see here (unfortunately the dreaded ‘sufferer’ snuck in without me realising – apologies!) : http://bit.ly/1Xrs4u9

Hopefully this will successfully highlight our and Mary Sherwood’s valuable work which aims to support working carers and HR departments that strive to reduce stress amongst their workforce.
