New initiative aims to make Lynn a Dementia Friendly town
A new initiative is being launched which aims to make Lynn a Dementia Friendly town.
Interested parties are being invited to attend an initial meeting next month to discuss plans for the formation of a new group and work for the year ahead.
The scheme aims to build on work in other parts of Norfolk which aims to make people living with dementia feel they are valued and still able to contribute to their community.
The idea for a Lynn group has been proposed by Tom and Emma McEwan, who are directors of the town-based business, Home Instead Senior Care, and work with many clients living with the condition.
Mr McEwan is already a trustee of a Dementia Friendly programme in Dereham said: “Kings Lynn is a community that needs support, advice, guidance and training.
“My wife and I have experience of dementia both personally and professionally and we’re looking for more people to join us in 2019.
“We need volunteers who are passionate and who are interested in giving something back into their local community, whilst supporting people who are living with dementia.”
The initial meeting will take place at Home Instead Senior Care’s offices, in Windsor Road, Lynn, on Monday, January 7, at 2pm.
Anyone who is interested in taking part, but who is unable to attend the meeting, can email firstname.lastname@example.org for details.
