About Dementia friendly dereham
The Dereham Dementia Friendly Group is made up of volunteers who are based at the Dereham Meeting Point, on St.Withburga Lane near the parish church.
We are a group of like-minded individuals from a range of different backgrounds who have been growingly aware of the impact of Dementia on the lives of people in our community. In some cases we have had personal experience of this condition in our lives and families. We believe as a group that it is vital all those with Dementia should be able to lead a full and active life and we want to be part of that whenever possible.
As a group we have a simple goal which is ..to provide information and guidance for carers and people living with Dementia in our local community..of Dereham and district.
We also want to contribute to the dementia awareness work in our community engaging with local business including shops, schools, churches and other volunteer groups.
Later this year we are launching an Information Centre at The Meeting Point which will be a source of further information and guidance. The Meeting Point also has leaflets, other sources of information and dates of events to support you further.
