As an integral part of the business community in Old Amersham we are delighted to be supporting Dementia Action Week 20-26th May. You will find many local initiatives that are bringing the subject of dementia into the open and encouraging our whole community to become dementia friends.

This year The Alzheimer’s Association are encouraging everyone to start with a simple conversation. This could be to a neighbour or relative with dementia or even someone you know who is alone and in need of some company.

Amersham Museum in the Old town are running a reminiscence project for the week, starting 20th May.

Amersham Market is holding a “Keep Safe” event with information stalls, Tuesday 21st May (Amersham-on-the-Hill).

We will have our HearToday drop-in event at Harewood Downs Golf Club on Wednesday 29th May, 10-4pm. This event is open to everyone and offers the chance to talk to our audiologists about dementia and hearing loss and to seek advice on how to look after someone with dementia from Carers at Ashridge Homecare.
