Life doesn't end when Dementia begins
Dementia Awareness Week 2016 will be running from 15th-21st May.
Boston Dementia Action Alliance have lots planned during this week to help support people in Boston who are living with Dementia and their carers.
More information about what's planned can be found below, or keep up to date by joining the Boston Dementia Action Alliance Facebook Page
Dementia Friends information sessions
These sessions are open to everyone and FREE to attend. The one hour sessions gives some brief information about what dementia is and how it might affect someone. It also gives practical suggestions and ideas about small actions you could take to help someone with dementia. If everybody within our community were to have a little bit of awareness and carry out one small action, this could drastically improve the experience for someone in Boston living with dementia and indeed their carers.
Sessions are running each day throughout the week in and around Boston. Please see the poster below or visit Dementia Friends to find your nearest one.
Taster activity sessions
There are lots of support groups and activity sessions running locally for people with dementia and their carers. Come along and try these for FREE...learn new skills, meet new friends and possibly just escape reality for a short while.
Please see the poster below to find out what sessions are running and when.
Boston Market Marquee
An information stall will be held in Boston Market Place on Wednesday 18th May, next to the Five Lamps. Here you will have the opportunity to speak with relevant professionals and organisations and have access to a whole range of FREE information that you can take away with you.
If you are not able to join us on the day, much of our information can be found on the Boston Borough Council website or in the local directory of services which can be found at Boston Dementia Action Alliance.
