Today it's all about dementia. The newsletter on my inbox read:
World Alzheimer’s Day is taking place on 21 September 2015 and
Alzheimer’s Disease International are encouraging everyone around the
world to get involved in an event to help raise awareness of dementia
and challenge stigma.
Here in Southsea we can join a new fortnightly session to be held at the King's Theatre (No. 28 Albert Road) to help people understand dementia more.
Red Sauce Theatre has researched and created a forum theatre piece that will help people to learn more about what it's like living with dementia.
This afternoon I had a quick chat with Rachel Goodall from Red Sauce Theatre and I hope to come along to her sessions as dementia affects us all and we both agreed that it's important to learn as much as possible and to have time to share our understanding and experiences with each other, particularly with those caring for people living with dementia.
