Visiting the CALM Support Group at St Edmund’s Church Hall in Hunstanton on Saturday, Henry Bellingham MP met organiser Debra Sautner from Somerset Villa, Lenny Sayers from Rebecca Court and Andrew Morgan from Healthwatch. He heard that with one in three of the over 75’s expected to develop dementia within the next 10 years, the aims of the group are to show that people with dementia can live well both in the community and in care homes and he learned about the support the group offers to both sufferers and their families.
Mr Bellingham said: “I applaud the work the group are doing supporting couples. It is so important that carers are helped when someone develops dementia.”
