Dementia Action Week event

About the event

Batley Library will be hosting a celebration event on Friday 17 May 10:30-12:30 for the Sensory Blankets Projects. The project ran earlier this year where volunteers knitted a variety of woolly items that were given to people living with dementia to be at ease.

Meet and Mend CIC who ran the project, will be displaying the blankets and twiddle muffs from the project, using them as an opportunity to raise awareness of dementia. Anyone visiting can also speak to a range of support services who will be available to offer advice and guidance to people living with dementia and their carers.

Also on Wednesday 22nd May 1:00pm-3.00pm – Caring for Someone with Memory Deterioration Session, Dewsbury Fire Station. Book via Kirklees Wellness Service.
