Dementia Action week 15th-21st May
Dementia Action Week (15-21 May) is an awareness raising campaign Each year the Alzheimer’s Society works with individuals and
organisations across the UK to encourage people to ‘act on dementia’. This year
the theme is timely diagnosis. Today at Highwell House we invited friends and
family to come and join our Dementia Cafe We chatted about dementia, raised awareness on what charities are trying to achieve and we signposted families to community support groups. We gave out purple ribbons to wear and we enjoyed a fabulous quiz. It was a lighthearted and fun afternoon but one which carried a special message.
Here's just a few pictures of what the residents have been up to
