Are You Dementia Aware?
DEMENTIA AWARENESS COFFEE MORNING
10:00 – 12:00 noon
TORBAY SCOUTS DISTRICT H.Q.
WATCOMBE CAMPSITE, TORQUAY
On behalf of our DC Paul Bailiss, Sandra and David Johnson are arranging a coffee morning at HQ, to which we have invited Norrms McNamara, the founder of the Purple Angel, who will talk about Dementia and what can be done to alleviate its effects.
More and more people are being diagnosed with Dementia and Torbay, with the aid of the Torbay Dementia Action Alliance, is set to become the first truly Dementia friendly resort in the UK.
We, as Scouts should be helping to further the aims of this association. We intend to produce a badge which scouts can earn by striving to understand Dementia and helping those who suffer from it.
Please come along for a free cup of coffee and a chat with Norrms and his team to find out what you can do.
