The Presbyterian Church on the Watton recently hosted a Dementia Awareness session for a group that meets there every week. Sixteen people attended, including the Vicar, all were senior citizens and a number have personal experience of dementia within their families.
Everyone engaged and participated, which made for a lively and enjoyable session, and each person in the group was keen to commit to becoming a Dementia Friend and to contributing towards making Brecon a Dementia Friendly Community. "This was such a lovely welcoming group and an excellent session." said Joan Brown, Dementia Champion and joint Chair of Brecon Dementia Friendly Community who hosted the information session.
