Making Trowbridge Dementia Friendly
Goodson Lodge is one of the partners in new action group
Goodson Lodge is among one of the town partners involved in ‘Dementia Action Trowbridge’; an action group formed with the aim of making local residents more aware of the condition and also how to access help and advice. February saw the inaugural meeting of the group, held virtually of course!
With representatives from a wide range of local stakeholders, Dementia Action Trowbridge aims to assist those living with dementia and their carers by facilitating opportunities to engage and participate in the community via a network of supportive organisations who can share resources and expertise.
Goodson's Customer Relationship Manager, Tim Wright, who worked with existing partners to form the group said, “I feel enormously proud that the community has come together to breathe life into a group that will benefit those living with dementia. As partners, we are already working together, but by forming Dementia Action Trowbridge, I have no doubt that we will see a tangible benefit both for the community and for those affected by dementia.”
And OSJCT Admiral Nurse, Luke Carter, added: “As a Trowbridge resident and Dementia Care Nurse, community awareness, engagement and action is vital for supporting people to live well with this condition.”
