Dementia Friendly

Making as many positive memories as possible

Award-winning Dementia Friendly Sessions

 

People living with Dementia and their carers know the things they are finding difficult, and our sessions, such as ‘Together Tuesday’, provides a much-needed respite from some of their daily challenges by focusing on positives memories and offering people opportunities to take part in activities which they are actually able to do and enjoy.

Carers, family members and friends of people living with Dementia are able to choose to stay and take part in the activities or equally are welcome to enjoy some time apart.

Hadleigh Dementia Action Alliance (HDAA)

 

The Hadleigh Dementia Action Alliance formed in 2014 with the aim of becoming the first Town in Suffolk to be recognised as working towards a Dementia Friendly Community. This was formally acknowledged by the Alzheimer’s Society in February 2015.

Our action plan was created out of research with people living with or caring for someone living with dementia with an aim to understanding how the community can support others to live well with dementia in Hadleigh.

Our community research tells us that there are 173 people registered with dementia in Hadleigh and with greater understanding and support as a community we aim to help others to live well with dementia.

Join the Alliance now, everyone has something to offer.
