Help make Yate a Dementia Friendly Town

Are you living with dementia? What would make life easier for people with dementia in our town? If you have ideas for making Yate easier for people with dementia or would like to know more please come to a meeting in Yate Parish Hall (the middle hall just along from the little Tesco) from 2pm to 4pm this coming Monday, 29th September.

Sue Walker is leading a campaign to make Yate a more dementia friendly place. Sometimes it's about knowing how to assist when someone is a bit confused. Many of the things are little things like numbering in the car park so we can remember where the car is......Our aim is to get a group of residents together to identify what could be done, and then set out about getting buy in. The Shopping Centre has already offered to help, and the Library has set up a Memory Cafe. Now Sue has won funding from Yate Town Council to support the project.

So - what Sue needs now is YOU - and your ideas and experiences. Do please come. If you cannot come, but have ideas or would like to be kept informed please contact Sue Walker on 310980.
