Information Stand in Stourport: Health & Wellbeing Community Event for Older People

Our Dementia Wellbeing Officer Carrolle will be holding an information stand at the Health & Wellbeing Community Event for Older People on Wednesday 22nd May 10:00 – 2:00 at The Civic Hall, Martin’s Way, Stourport, DY13 8UJ.

Information Stand at Worcester Acute:

Our information stand will be in the main entrance area at the Acute on Friday 24th May. We will have a range of information guides on living well with dementia and a member of staff on hand to answer any queries.
We are hoping that the dementia information stand will visit the Acute on a regular basis from then on.

Our friends from the Mini Explorers Nature Nursery (also located at Droitwich RFC) will be popping in to spend the afternoon with the members of the centre.
