Establishing a dementia friendly community

Monthly information sessions are to be held to raise awareness about dementia and establish Sandbach as a Dementia Friendly community.
The initiative is to be led by Sandbach Partnership.
Three local residents, Dot Flint, Sandbach Partnership chairman, and local Rotarians Jane Spencer and Dave Whitworth were recently trained in Crewe as Dementia Friends Champions to run the sessions.
They will be joined by local resident Helen Williams who, as a champion, has already created over 300 Dementia Friends.
