Dementia Friendly Wem – find out more!

This initiative is led by The Alzheimer’s Society and supported by the Wem Economic Forum where all local businesses, organisations, clubs and groups – however large or small – are being encouraged to sign up as Supporters by attending a Dementia Friends session and considering how small actions can make a huge positive difference.

The Dementia Friends programme aims to transform the way the nation thinks, acts and talks about the condition. Stigma and lack of understanding cause many people living with dementia to experience loneliness and social exclusion, so Dementia Friends hopes to tackle this by creating communities and businesses that are dementia friendly and more inclusive of people affected by dementia.

People living with dementia often find it harder to have conversations, or might need a little time to gather their thoughts and remember whatever they wanted to do or say. These symptoms often cause people to lose confidence.

Dementia Friendly Wem is a way to make it easier for people living with dementia to remain active and involved in their communities. We also want to increase understanding of what dementia is, and to reduce the fear surrounding the condition. In order to achieve this, four Dementia Friends information sessions have been arranged, led by local Dementia Friends Champions and hosted by Wem Town Hall and Wem Cricket Club.

Our hope is that every shop window in Wem will be proud to display a sticker and that groups and clubs will also embrace the initiative.

We look forward to welcoming you to one of the following sessions. To book your place email viv.edgar1@gmail.com or pop into Wem Town Hall Reception

 

Wednesday 12th September, 1.30 pm, Wem Town Hall

Wednesday 3rd October, 7.00 pm, Wem Cricket Club

Thursday 11th October, 7.00 pm, Wem Cricket Club

Tuesday23rd October, 5.30 pm, Wem Town Hall
