Let’s make Cramlington a dementia-friendly town
March 28, 2019
Representatives of businesses and organisations in Cramlington have formed a dementia working group with the aim of improving the lives of residents in the town who are living with the condition.
The group will meet monthly to report back on action taken and to generate further awareness of the issues faced by those living and caring for people with the illness.
Action points already agreed by the group include organising dementia-friendly sessions, involving younger members of the community and holding fund-raising events.
Another aim is to provide a quiet area within Manor Walks so those living with dementia and their carers can have ‘time-out’.
If you would like to become involved with the project please contact Loraine De Simone on 07796615075
