ACTION TO MAKE LUDLOW A DEMENTIA FRIENDLY TOWN

August 21, 2018 9:19 AM

LDALudlow Dementia Action Alliance is holding the meeting at Hagley Place (next to Coop service station) on the 30th August to discuss the next phase of making Ludlow a more dementia friendly town.

Cllr Viv Parry, chairman of the group, said: " It is estimated that there are around 73,500 people in the West Midlands who have dementia. In Ludlow we have a higher proportion of elderly residents than most of Shropshire and we need to take action now to support residents affected by this condition. Some 30 businesses and interested parties have beeninvited to this meeting to discuss how we can work together to make Ludlow dementia friendly.

"Over the last six months we have produced a leaflet written by Mike Beazley administrator which explains how we work with other groups to help carers and dementia sufferers but there is much more to be done.

In addition we have invited George Rook Chair Shropshire Telford &Wrekin Action Alliance and Kat Horner Dementia Friendly Communities Officer for the -West Midlands to join us at our 11th September meeting to talk about other towns who are working the same way to become Dementia Friendly.
