Dementia Friendly Chorleywood (CW) was publicly launched in the Village Buzz cafe on Sat 27 June .DFC logo_1

The initiative is led in Chorleywood by Melanie Allen, Business Development Manager from Sunrise Senior Living.

David Gauke, MP for SW Herts, formally opened the event and Tony Edwards, Chairman CW Parish Council, spoke

The first memory café will take place on Monday 3 August from 10.30am – 12.30pm at The Junction, Christ Church, with the next one booked for Monday 7 September.

Practical moves in making the village Dementia Friendly could include shops setting up a separate queue for the tills so that people who might take longer to pay are not pressurised by those behind them. Some high street banks have already taken this on board.

Future plans for the group include working with Chorleywood churches and schools to run sessions aimed at increasing dementia awareness,

“People need to make adjustments to the way they do things.’ says Melanie Allen, “Families with dementia are often victimised in shops and restaurants because the person they are caring for might be acting unusually. Residents will be encouraged to be more tolerant with people who experience difficulties and to be alert to individuals who may be wandering around and confused. Chorleywood is very community based already so we are expecting it to be a complete success.”

* A dementia-friendly community is one in which people with dementia are empowered to have aspirations and feel confident, knowing they can contribute and participate in activities that are meaningful to them. – The Alzheimer’s Society
