Published: 9th February 2018

The Churches of Stoke Prior, Wychbold, Feckenham and Bradley Green are coming together to promotedementia awareness across the communities they serve. 

Dementia FriendsTraining, accredited by the Alzheimers Society, is being run on Tuesday 27 February at The Lodge, Burcot Grange near Blackwell (B60 1BJ) - a brandnew dedicated dementia care home for residents and communities served by theWychebrook Group of Churches and churches across Bromsgrove and Redditch.

Rev Gary Crellin from theWychebrook Group of churches is supporting this venture. He said:

Havingworked previously in the NHS and developed services for people with a dementia,I am aware of how anxious people are of the mere mention of the D word. One way to tackle this is to be informed and supported. Thats what thesesessions plan to do. They are open to all in our communities, not thosethat bother to come to church. Please come and learn more!

With grateful thanks toThe Lodge at Burcot Grange, two sessions (with refreshments) are planned for Tuesday27 February - 2-4pm and repeated at 7-9pm. Toattend the sessions, please book with June Crofts on 01527 832913.

Rev Gary continued:

These are free and popular sessions - fun andinteractive. Lets work together to reduce the stigma associated withsuch a difficult set of diseases by find out more and learning how to cope andwhat support is out there to help.
