Members Meet... The Demetia Service and Alzheimer's Society
Monday 2nd December saw the trust's second 'Members Meet...' take place at West Yorkshire Playhouse. Su McAlpin, the named nurse for dementia, and Peter Ruickbie from the Alzheimer's Society led the discussion on the very current topic of dementia.
The subject proved to be of huge interest, with 40 members attending the sessions. The session generated a lot of talk and debate between members on how local services can support people suffering with dementia. It is clear to see that the issue resonates with the local community and is a priority on their agenda as much as it is nationwide. The membership team was overwhelmed with the support that members wanted to give towards the cause and will be working with Su to involve members in supporting patients with dementia. If you are interested in becoming a member and getting involved in this project please email email@example.com, you can sign up to be a member here.
To help the Alzheimer’s Society in their fight against dementia, you can also get involved with them in a number of ways, from making a monthly donation, signing up to one of their fundraising events, volunteering in your local area or getting involved in campaigning issues.
