Dementia Friendly Salisbury

Dementia Friendly Salisbury

Over 20 partners gathered last night in the refectory at Salisbury Cathedral, including businesses, solicitors, cultural organisations, councillors, volunteers, charities, hospital staff, charities and many more, to celebrate work done in 2017 to make Salisbury more dementia friendly, and to recommit to this pledge in 2018.
People living with dementia and their carers also attended and bravely shared painful experiences of dementia, whilst also expressing much gratitude for the ongoing work, be that to adapt shop premises, host awareness raising events, facilitate art, dance and other social activities, raise funds and generally to raise the bar in terms of care and compassion for those living with dementia in the city.
The Salisbury Dementia Action Alliance is the organisation tasked with bringing partners together twice a year to share successes, discuss challenges and to recommit to the pledge to make Salisbury a dementia friendly community. It is hosted by the Safer Salisbury Community Group.
