Supporting Dementia Awareness Week at Barton Grange

As part of our Dementia Awareness week events for 2017 we joined forces with Home Instead Preston to provide 'A Walk Down Memory Lane' at Barton Grange Garden Centre.    We could be found in the Green Room with memorabilia, music, reminiscence materials and activities to enjoy. In conjunction with the Alzheimer's Society we also offered Dementia Friends awareness sessions, plus free information and advice to anyone experiencing memory loss.


We had some lovely visitors, shared some wonderful memories and thoroughly enjoyed the opportunity to support people in our local community who may be experiencing memory loss themselves or supporting a loved one.
