Creating a Dementia Friendly Community

Tuesday August 29 2017

 

Church of Scotland social care arm CrossReach is collaborating with the local Churches Together on a ‘Creating a Dementia Friendly Community’ event in Clarkston, East Renfrewshire.

The open day, on October 7 in St Aidan’s Episcopal Church, is aiming to reduce the stigma surrounding dementia and to raise awareness of the support available in the Clarkston area.

The keynote address is by Andy Lowndes, co-founder with Sally Magnusson of the Playlist for Life organisation which uses meaningful music as a dementia therapy.

There will also be two workshops run by CrossReach: one on communication and dementia, and the other on creativity, focussing on the Heart for Art project which helps people with dementia to express themselves through participation in art.

In addition, representatives from relevant organisations and initiatives in the area will be there to chat with.

As it is a pop-in event no booking is necessary, but if you wish to attend either or both workshops you can reserve your place by contacting Clarkston Churches Together. The workshops will run twice each, at 10am and 11am, with Andy Lowndes’ address in the afternoon.
