Dementia Action Week in Wokingham Libraries May 21-27

Alzheimer's logoIn the UK one person develops dementia every three minutes, yet too many people face it alone. In Dementia Action week, the Alzheimer’s Society is calling on everyone to take action to improve the lives of people affected by Dementia.

In At Wokingham Library at 10.30am on Thursday May 24, Shirley Pearce, BSC (Hons) Occupational Therapy will be giving a talk called Understanding Dementia– and lessening its impact for those who care-in any sense.

This is a FREE presentation but places should be booked by calling (0118) 9781368

Woodley Library is running a number of activities including a Coffee morning on Thursday May 24 10am -12noon to raise money for the Alzheimer’s Society. Reminiscence activities will also be available in the library.

There will also be two Dementia Awareness Sessions at Woodley Library where you can find out more about dementia and the ways in which you can help people in the community. These are being held on  Friday 25th May at 12noon and  Thursday May 31 at 6pm.

There will also be a small display with  a representative from The Alzheimer’s Society, Age UK Reading and Home Instead inside Woodley Library on 25th May  10.00 – 14.00 , giving information to users and shoppers.

For more information and bookings call Woodley Library on (0118) 9690304

These sessions are FREE to attend between 10am to 3pm every Wednesday.
