It is too late to book a place for this particular session, sorry about that.
As Glenrothes continues to work towards becoming a dementia friendly town, the Dementia Friendly Glenrothes project intends to step up its support by staging a participation and engagement group gathering on Tuesday 20 March at The Miner’s Welfare Club.
The Dementia Friendly Glenrothes project is a partnership between the Fife Health and Social Care Partnership, the Glenrothes Area Committee, Fife Council and Alzheimer Scotland which aims to support people living with dementia to remain a valued part of their community.
The project is inviting people living with dementia, families and carers from across Glenrothes to come along on the night from 6pm-8pm, to the CISWO Building on North Street, to help shape the work of the project and to ensure that the voice of those living with dementia are heard and represented as the project gathers pace by involving more local businesses in their engagements.
Ruth McCabe, Dementia Friendly Project Manager, commented: “The aim of our dementia friendly community work is to make it easier for people living with dementia to be understood, valued and able to contribute to their community in Glenrothes. By staging this participation and engagement event we hope to engage with more families across the region who are living with dementia to help us shape our work which supports our mission that nobody should face dementia alone particularly in the communities where they live.”
If you are interested in attending please contact Ruth McCabe from Alzheimer Scotland on Tel: 01592 803 800 or by Email: [email protected] by 19 March.
