Rotarians Easing Problems of Dementia is an inter club and inter district network of Rotarians. REPoD encourages and supports Rotarians and Clubs to take local action to help people living with dementia and their families to live well. Individual Rotary Clubs do this in different ways; being involved in Memory Cafes, becoming Dementia Friends and Champions, supporting Local Dementia Action Alliances in the creation of Dementia Friendly Communities (http://www.repod.org.uk)
Here is Shila delivering a traditional face to face Dementia Friends Information Session to Rotarians from various local Rotary Clubs from across District 1090 in April 2019.
