Launch of new support group
Dementia Friendly Ilkley Action group (DFIA) is inviting anyone who cares for, or has previously cared for someone living with dementia, to a monthly support session.
The first informal meeting was on Monday 21 January at 7pm at the Wheatley Arms, Ben Rhydding.
Anyone is invited to turn up to discuss, in an informal setting, what they would like from the session, where health care professionals will be also be in attendance.
DFIA also run Dementia Friends information sessions, open to all, where you can learn a little bit more about what it’s like to live with dementia, and then turn that knowledge into understanding and actions. The next sessions are Monday 11th March 6pm and Saturday 6 April at 10am, at the Clarke Foley Centre, Ilkley.
