The Dementia Action Week begins today and runs through Sunday, May 26 and is an annual event to bring people, workplaces, and communities together to improve the lives of people with a Dementia Action Week.
Right at Home will share a series of blog posts throughout the week to educate people about the signs and symptoms of dementia to raise awareness. Right at Home regularly organizes training sessions in schools, businesses and the local community so that cities and towns are friendly with dementia.
Last month, the home care provider began a new charity relationship with the Alzheimer’s Society and promised to raise more than £ 20,000 in the Right at Home office network in the next 12 months.
North Yorkshire Fire and Rescue organizes a morning coffee at Milton Rooms in Malton, from 10 am to 4 pm, on Wednesday, May 22. The Alzheimer’s Society will organize two public sessions of Friends of Dementia as part of the event at 11:00 AM and 2:00 PM. A Friends of Dementia session is also held at the Pickering Library on Thursday, May 23 at 5:30 PM.
Linda Haggie, Area Manager for the Alzheimer’s Society in North Yorkshire, said: “We all have a role in Ryedale to help create a dementia-friendly generation that changes the way people think, speak and act about dementia. Currently, there are 2.8 million friends with Alzheimer’s dementia in the United Kingdom, including 1677 in Ryedale.
