Bid to make Narberth a ‘Dementia-Friendly’ Town

Posted By Robert Lloyd

The Narberth and Whitland Rotary Club is organising a meeting with local businesses to see if they will help to make Narberth a Dementia-Friendly Town.

The Narberth and Whitland Rotary Club successfully set up a friendship club more than 12 months ago to help people with life-limiting illness or suffering from loneliness.

The Living Memory Group (LMG) is now well established, meeting on the 1st and 3rd Thursdays of each month from 1.30 to 3.30pm.

It is rewarding to see how much the attendees enjoy each session which can involve music and singing or handicrafts and painting.

The eldest member recently celebrated his 100th birthday and he still enjoys sketching and drawing portraits.

The Narberth Primary School led by Head Teacher Nia Edwards was instrumental in involving pupils from her Junior School, becoming active in this community venture.

The elderly and the young participants enjoy a synergy just like Grand parents with their Grand children and yet they are complete strangers.

Both generations benefit from this communal activity.

Now the Rotary Club is seeking to involve businesses in the town, making Narberth a Dementia-Friendly Town.

To understand how sufferers can enjoy the experience of shopping without confusion which often affects those with Dementia, the traders will learn how the service they provide can be tweaked without costing anything.

Residents and Business representatives are invited to come along for an hour at the end of the day and see what is involved.
