On May 24th the Alzheimer’s Society invited Joan Brown and Rhiannon Davies, the Co-chairs of Brecon Dementia Friendly Community, to attend a Dementia Friendly Communities Showcase at Wales Millenium Centre in Cardiff to celebrate the communities, organisations and individuals helping to make Wales a dementia-friendly nation. Brecon’s work was highlighted through a film the Society had compiled and Joan Brown received a special award for being only one of two Dementia Friends Champions who have created over 1000 Dementia Friends. Sadly, Joan was unable to attend the event as she was unwell, but in recognition of her invaluable work and commitment we too add our congratulations. Well done, Joan!
