demential week 250-253

Peter writes about a visit he made during Dementia week.

Dementia Week brought out the best in Bluebird Care, which in turn brought out tea and cakes, nibbles, balloons, more cakes … and the Fire Brigade. The Bayston Hill-based care providers really got into the spirit of raising awareness of dementia with a street party in front of the local parade of shops.

It wasn’t all fun, because there were some serious and useful presentations going on as well, and with a whacking great fire engine parked outside it was bound to get attention.

The fire crew entered into the spirit of the occasion and busily signed people up for a free home safety check. Also supporting the event were Wiltshire Farm Foods and Salop Mobility. Now that is what we call networking.

Our picture shows some of the staff, carers and fire crew outside Bluebird Care.

SDN says “Thank you Peter. If anyone goes to an event or want to something with with our members, then write a few words & send us a photo or two & we will be pleased to do the rest”.
