Alzheimer’s Society and Yeo Valley Lions

Alzheimer 1 Alzheimer 2

In May 2017, Yeo Valley Lions Club was recognised by the Alzheimer’s Society as a Dementia Friendly Organisation and many of its members have become individual Dementia Friends. 

The Alzheimer’s Society’s Dementia Friends programme is the biggest ever initiative to change people’s perspective of dementia, it aims to transform the way we think, act and talk about the condition.  

Dementia is a progressive disease of the brain and currently over 850,000 people are living with the condition, and this is predicted to increase to over a million by 2025.  

Yeo Valley Lions Club is working closely with the Dorset and Somerset Locality of the Alzheimer’s Society to help to develop services to support families in the Yeo Valley area. It is sponsoring an Information Hub/Café in Wrington. The hub, which recently started, takes place on the first Tuesday of each month from 10am to noon, at the Reading Room.  

If you are worried about your memory or have had a diagnosis of Dementia, or someone you know is affected by Dementia, please come along to the Information Hub/Café for support and advice.  You don’t have to be a resident of Wrington to attend. 

For details, call Helen Harvey-Foster Alzheimer’s Society - Dementia Support Worker on 07740456706.  

Yeo Valley Lions is also working to encourage other Lions Clubs to become Dementia Friendly Organisations.
