DEMENTIA FRIENDLY LLANTWIT MAJOR
Who are we?
Llantwit Major is a friendly and welcoming town where a number of community champions are active in increasing the support of local people affected by dementia, through running a Memory Café and providing information on services and support for dementia. Marie Curie is partnering with community champions to identify local businesses that would like to receive support to successfully gain ‘Working to become Dementia Friendly’ recognition with Alzheimer’s Society, to enable people affected by dementia to continue to live well as part of their community .
What do we do?
Information will be coming very soon about Dementia Friendly activities in Llantwit Major.
A message from Alun Cairns MP
It was a privilege to host my dementia friendly session on 13th October at the Llantonian Hall in Llantwit Major, in conjunction with The Alzheimer’s Society. I became a 'trained' Dementia Champion some years ago and this was the first Dementia Friendly Information session that I have held since the pandemic.
Led by Huw from The Alzheimer’s Society, the session was incredibly insightful and interesting. It is designed to support those living with dementia and their families, co-workers, friends and carers. The workshop focussed on developing greater awareness and understanding of dementia with helpful advice and tips on how to make sure those living with dementia live a full and happy life.
It was engaging and interactive and offered a safe place to explore and talk freely. Feedback from attendees has been excellent and I plan to hold more in the future.
