Dementia affects so many people not just those who have been given the diagnosis, care support and understanding is key to helping those living with the disease. This is why I give my time as a volunteer for the Alzheimer's Society as a Dementia Friend and am an active member in our newly formed Uckfield Dementia Forum and the wider Wealden Action Alliance.
This week the Wealden Action Alliance celebrated the first birthday with stalls, speakers and dementia friends session.
In the evening Alison from Home Instead and I joined forces again to do a double act informing the Uckfield Chamber of Commerce about the work of the Uckfield Dementia Forum, Wealden Action Alliance and Dementia Friends. As well as again promoting the Forums information day at the Pavilion with dementia friends sessions.
