On Thursday, 9th May, we at Unite Carers in Mid Devon held an Open Day for Dementia Action Week. The afternoon started 12 noon, right after our Exe Valley Oasis Support Group for dementia carers in Tiverton. The staff team of Sharon and Tracy were very well supported by trustees and volunteers (as always) who not only helped on the day with dementia advice, support and conversation, but also baked the most delicious cakes for everyone to enjoy.
It was lovely to see so many of you come along and I think we just about managed to squeeze everyone into No.4. Our unexpected star of the show was a young man who came in to play to us on his guitar and we all enjoyed the interlude very much. We were also joined by Ginny from the Filo Project. Thank you to everyone, you really did make the afternoon special.
As many of you will already know, this week is Dementia Action Week, which runs from 13-19th May 2024. With help from the Alzheimer’s Society, each day during this week we will be posting information on taking action together to improve dementia diagnosis rates.
