Epping Forest Dementia Action Alliance is Growing in Loughton.
Loughton, Buckhurst Hill and Chigwell Rotary have played a key role in the EF DAA since its inception in May this year. They are now signed up to the National Dementia Declaration which has been created in partnership with people with dementia.
Paul Reynolds from Haslers, chartered accountants, Loughton said “All members of Epping Forest Dementia Action Alliance publish an action plan on the DAA’s web site www.dementiaaction.org.uk , appropriate to their organisation. They then set out what they will do to help improve the lives of people living with dementia.”
Pesh Kapasiawala who is a member and former president of the local Rotary said “ We are looking forward to implementing our action plan and want to encourage other organisations and businesses across the district to sign up to help create a dementia-friendly community.”
LBC Rotary run lots of activities including their Memory Café on the 2nd Friday of the month at The Loughton Club , Station Road, for both those living with varying levels of memory loss and their carers/family and partners to enjoy free refreshments, entertainment, memorabilia and a chat.
