Montgomery is officially ‘working to become dementia friendly’!

The Montgomery Dementia Friends Group has successfully raised awareness of dementia in the local community amongst both residents and businesses.  The group is properly constituted with the Alzheimer’s Society and has a steering committee of Chair Eric Fairbrother, Secretary Wendy Beaven and Treasurer Jane Lloyd.   The group, who meet monthly, is composed of Montgomery folk who are committed to helping people living with dementia in Montgomery and the surrounding area.  The twenty or so members of the group have been through a training session held by a trained Dementia Champion.

Making Montgomery a dementia friendly community will involve all local businesses as well as residents. Look out for the window stickers indicating that a business is ‘Working to become dementia friendly’! Developing Montgomery as a dementia friendly community will involve a continuing focus on engaging with local needs. Central to the work of the Montgomery Dementia Friends group will be activities that encourage social interaction and combat the isolation often experienced by people living with dementia.
