New city guide to help those living with dementia
Published on 13 May 2021 07:40 PM
A new city guide to help those living with dementia has been launched by the Norwich City Dementia Action Alliance - the team behind the Dementia Friendly Norwich campaign.
The guide showcases all the local services in Norwich that are available to those living with dementia and their familes, and more groups and clubs will be added as they restart over the coming weeks and months.
“We often hear how after a diagnosis of dementia, families feel left in the dark and unsupported," comments Chair of the Norwich Dementia Alliance Dan Skipper. "They want to talk to someone to understand the conditions, their options, and most importantly feel supported and know who they can turn to as things change or if they need help. Over the last few years, we’ve had over 100 organisations pledge their support to the campaign and we’ve created over 5,000 Dementia Friends across our members in the city. As lockdown eases, its time to re-focus our efforts and ensure we keep supporting families living with dementia and grow the support available across the city. “
The Norwich City Dementia Action Alliance is a collaboration of local organisations who are passionate about making Norwich a city that understands, welcomes, and includes people living with dementia.
