Campaign launched to make Stoke-on-Trent UK's first 'dementia-friendly' city

June 13, 2016

Today a campaign has been launched for Stoke-on-Trent to become the country's first Dementia Friendly City as reported in the Sentinel. The Beth Johnson fully supports this initiative, we come in daily contact with individuals who have Dementia, at various stages, they should have all the help they can to live well and be able to function in a city that is inclusive. Our dementia advocates Betty Machin and Jane Snape are part of the Dementia Friendly Communities group, together with a member of our Dementia Peer Support group, so are very eager to see the Dementia Friendly model come to fruition.
