Worthing Dementia Action Alliance
To make Worthing a more dementia friendly environment
The Worthing Dementia Forum has been active and regularly meeting since April 2014.
We are a collective of people living with dementia, carers, health and social care professionals, people working in the local community, GPs, nurses, local traders and businesses. We are working with the local council to make it dementia friendly as well as creating dementia friendly schools, churches, the theatre and cinemas. Over 1100 local people are dementia friends
Chairperson: Tom Wye, a local councillor. However, we are aiming to rotate this position with other members of the steering group who are willing to chair the meetings.
Meetings: We meet every two months at different locations around Worthing. Next meeting Wednesday 11 May 2016 4 pm. Alzheimers Society, Stone Lane, Worthing BN13 2BA. Presentation by Impact Initiatives, free membership scheme for SME employers who are supporting staff who are older, disabled or have seriously ill family members or friends.
