Dementia Friends

Dementia

Many of our volunteers and staff attended Dementia Friends sessions at Methold House, Worthing and Chesham House, Lancing over the last  2 weeks. The sessions were delivered by Guildcare a prominent provider of Dementia activities, homes and care in the Worthing area.

The sessions were enjoyed by all participants. They came away with a greater understanding of the disease and the modern approach to helping those 1 in 3 of us who will be affected by it, at first hand or as carers.

 

West Sussex Armed Forces Weekend in Worthing

We had a stall in Steine Gardens, Worthing on the Saturday to help promote our services and volunteering opportunities within West Sussex.

It was a popular event with many participating organisations dressing the part in 1940’s uniforms.

Vintage Themed Community Coffee Shop

The walls have come down (yes…on purpose!) and our Vintage Themed Community Coffee Shop is underway. It will take a little while to create as we don’t want to close the centre whilst the work is in progress.

But, little by little, things are happening and we hope to be opening mid to late July 2015.

Out and about

We attended the Pensioners’ Fair in Worthing on 2oth March, where we met other organisations and promoted our services and volunteer opportunities. We had many service enquires and several possible volunteers show an interest in the many roles available within those services.

We look forward to getting out and about in the coming months. If you have an event which you think we would be interested in attending, please give us a call on 01903 851558.
