A hugely successful network event, organised by Ageing Well in Wales and Brecon and Hay Dementia Friendly Community, was held on 26 November in Brecon. The event was supported by The Alzheimer's Society, Powys Association of Voluntary Organisations, Powys County Council and Powys Teaching Health Board. The event was well supported with representation from across all sectors.
The aim of the event was to build and develop Dementia Supportive Communities across Powys by:-
- Sharing examples of practical ways to support people with a dementia
- Identifying best practice and sources of information
- Exploring ways of working together in the future
Some of the participants are pictured below.
