Dementia Awareness

The Rotary Club of Newmarket actively looks for opportunities to support our local community regarding Dementia.

Two of us are members of the Newmarket Dementia Action Alliance, with Christine Ellesley being the Vice Chair.

A little while back, we researched and planned a dementia information pop up stall / Know your Blood Pressure event. This was subsequently shelved due to increasing work commitments and then Covid. With this past planning in mind, we are looking to restart this project with the assistance of a team of Rotarians. We are very lucky to have access to a very knowledgeable Registered Nurses at Gracewell of Kentford, so we will also be asking for their assistance for this event. 

In addition to our (date to be confirmed) event, we will be looking to support any dementia support programme in our community, representing both Rotary Newmarket and Gracewell of Kentford.

Gracewell have recently purchased some of the interactive pets for resident’s living with dementia and there is also an OMI Magic table within Gracewell of Kentford. We would very much like to hold an event or meeting within the community in the future to share these technology advancements and inform all our fellow Rotarians.
