RESIDENTS were invited to the launch of the Rochford Parish Dementia Action Alliance, in order to learn how to help all those living with the condition.
The Rochford Parish Dementia Action Alliance - led by Rochford Parish Council with support from Rochford District Council - shared information about how to spot the early warning signs, as well as how to become a ‘Dementia Friend.”
Coun June Lumley, Rochford District Council’s portfolio holder for community, said: “In the parish of Rochford alone there were 150 people who had received a diagnosis as of last November, and it is believed that many more remain undiagnosed.
“Therefore it is imperative that as many people as possible become ‘Dementia Friends’ in order to help those within our communities who are affected, and so I would urge everyone to attend this event.”
