A Dementia Action Alliance has launched in Hackney to help improve the lives of people living with dementia and provide support to their families and carers.
Activities on offer at Friday’s launch event at Hackney Central Library, Reading Lane, included mindful yoga, reminiscence workshops and a virtual tour of Hackney Museum. Information and advice about dementia and memory loss problems were also at hand.
Some of the issues facing people with dementia include timely diagnosis and adequate post-diagnosis support to overcoming patchy quality of care, social isolation and loneliness.
David Morris, operations manager for the Alzheimer’s Society, said: “With the right support people can live well with the condition.
“This Dementia Action Alliance will further support those living with dementia in the area and help Hackney become a dementia friendly community and contribute to the overarching goal of making London the first dementia-friendly capital city in the world.”
