WIN Living Well in the Community are now actively involved in the Dementia Action Alliance and Dementia Champions.
Working closely with Adult Social Care’s Community Capacity Workers we are carrying out dementia audits on all Life Leisure venues (Stockport). This is to put forward recommendations to Life Leisure, for them to work towards becoming dementia friendly venues, including signage, and building dementia awareness in their inductions for new staff.
We are also able to offer ‘Dementia Awareness Sessions’ delivered by our WIN Dementia Champion. These are short information sessions, encouraging others to make a positive difference to people living with dementia in their community. We do this by giving information about the personal impact of dementia, and what individuals can do to help.
