DID YOU KNOW …….
That St. James Church is a founder member of the Weybridge Dementia Action Alliance?
Our DAA has recently joined up with Elmbridge Borough Council to encourage local businesses to support this initiative. From experience we know that Weybridge is Dementia Friendly but we want those living with dementia, and their carers, to be aware of which businesses have undertaken the Dementia Friendly Awareness sessions and are therefore better placed to help when required.
Our aim is to recruit as many businesses as possible, in Weybridge, to the DAA. Businesses will have to commit to sending their staff on a 60 minute awareness session then they can display the DAA logo in their window. Seeing the logo should reassure a person that, if they become disorientated or confused, this is where they will be able to get help.
Further details are on the leaflet and if you would like any more information, or if you would like to join the alliance, please do contact :
