Warrington Dementia Project
Despite having dementia I am ‘still me’ and have a meaningful life.
I want to get rid of the stigma around dementia.
Still Me, supported by Warrington Speak Up, aims to strengthen the voices of people living with dementia in Warrington.
Working in partnership with people living with dementia, carers, community groups and organisations we aim to collate views, themes and experiences. We recognise people living with dementia want others to know that they still want lives that are meaningful and full. They want to end the stigma attached to the word ‘dementia’.
Our findings will be fed back to the Warrington Dementia Transformation Board who are looking to improve dementia care for all in Warrington.
The Still Me Warrington DEEP group (Dementia Engagement and Empowerment Project – the UK network of dementia voices) is a peer support group for people living with dementia and their carers. Please see the poster below.
We are able to provide independent advocacy support for people living with dementia to access the services and support they may need as a result of their diagnosis. There is more information in the poster below.
The Making Connections Dementia Network involves organisations and community groups within Warrington where ideas, resources and expertise can be shared to make a difference for people living with dementia in our community. If your group or organisation would like to be part of this network please get in touch.
Welcome to the first Making Connections newsletter. Making Connections is part of the Still Me Warrington Dementia Project and is a network of over 35 different services and groups who support people living with dementia and their carers.
This is the first newsletter which will be published quarterly. Look out for the second edition in the spring next year.
