SILSDEN people are being invited to learn how the town can become a ‘Dementia-Friendly Community’.

A coffee morning and drop-in workshop will be held on Saturday, March 24 from 10am to noon at Silsden Methodist Church.

Free refreshments will be available, and there will be information talks between 10.30am and 11am.

People can learn more about dementia, what makes a Dementia Friendly Community, and how they can help Silsden work towards that goal.

Dementia-Friendly Communities are towns and villages that support people with dementia, their families and carers, and friends.

Email or call Dementia Friends Champion Eileen Jowitt on 01535 657256.

A similar group of volunteers have run a campaign to make Keighley a Dementia-Friendly Community, and now run a unit in the Airedale shopping centre as an office and information point.

Dementia Friendly Keighley supports people with dementia and their carers by helping increase understanding of dementia amongst the wider population and change the way Keighley communities think, talk and act about dementia.
