- Local Alliances:
- Worthing Dementia Action Alliance
1. Action Plan
We have joined the local Worthing Dementia Action Alliance to be able to better serve our local community, especially people who are living with dementia, their carers, extended family and neighbours.
Through the Alliance we will liaise with like minded organisations to improve our knowledge and understanding of dementia and how it affects peoples daily lives. We will share best practice and adopt an open and supportive environment to ensure people affected by dementia continue to feel welcomed at church and remain an active part of their community.
We will install signs with both text and pictures to and from the main public rooms of the church i.e. church hall, toilets, exit etc.
Dementia Friends Information Sessions
We will host dementia friends information sessions for everyone on our Methodist circuit.
Raise awareness in the wider community
We will continue to host dedicated dementia awareness sessions as part of Worthing mental health awareness week.
