Dementia Action Week 20 – 24 May
To celebrate Dementia Action Week, Pioneer Projects will be having an Exhibition of Artwork in Bentham Community Library. All the work will be created by those living with a Dementia during our weekly creative sessions.
In support of, (BDDFC) Bentham and District Dementia Friendly Community, Pioneer Projects will be hosting a Dementia Champions Information Session in Looking Well on Monday 20th May 2 – 3pm, we would like to invite all local businesses and organisations to come along and find out more about the impact Dementia has on people. Also we would like to invite everyone to have their say at the BDDFC ‘Listening Event’ to let us know what more you would like to have provided in your local area to help those living with a dementia remain independent for longer. This will be an informal gathering at Looking Well on June 3rd 1 – 2.30pm.
Our Community Lunch and Creative Morning on Tuesday’s is a Dementia Friendly session, do come along and join in with the artwork, cooking or creative writing group followed by a vegetarian soup.
