Making Heeley and Woodseats Dementia Friendly

Monday, March 31, 2014

Local MP Meg Munn is delighted to support an initiative aimed at making Heeley and Woodseats ‘dementia friendly’.

A dementia friendly community is one where people with dementia are understood, respected and supported, where people will be aware of and understand dementia. Importantly people with dementia will feel included and involved, and have choice and control over their day-to-day lives.

Meg will work with Kath Horner, Principal Health Improvement Officer at the city council, to engage with local businesses so that they can train their staff to become dementia friendly. She will also host a public event in the summer to spread the message more widely.  

Kath is currently piloting a project on developing a dementia friendly neighbourhood in Woodhouse; she hopes that eventually the whole of Sheffield can be recognised as dementia friendly.

Meg said:

“800,000 people in the UK suffer from dementia and this number will only increase as the population gets older. Local communities will need to play an important role in not only recognising those with dementia, but in offering them help and support.

Many local businesses in my constituency already operate effective customer care, which means they already have the attributes and skills in place needed to become more dementia friendly. I look forward to working with them to help this along.”
