The Alzheimer’s Society held a Dementia Friendly Community Showcase on Tuesday 24 May 2016 at the Millennium Centre in Cardiff Bay. Representatives from dementia supportive communities around the country and Welsh Assembly Members were invited to celebrate the successes of the scheme.
Sue Phelps, Director of Alzheimer’s Society in Wales gave a speech on the Society’s vision of a dementia friendly Wales, while Rebecca Evans, the new AM for Minister for Social Services and Public Health outlined the new dementia strategy. Robbie Savage, ambassador for the Alzheimer’s Society recorded a message for the event too.
We had constructive talks with fellow volunteers from different Dementia Friendly Communities as well as Sue Phelps and other Alzheimer’s Society representatives.
