Dementia Action for Marlow
An unincorporated volunteer group specifically set up for those people who are living with dementia and their carers. The aim of the group is to:
provide support and facilitate social interaction by making regular contact, and arranging small ‘café gatherings’.
enable friendships between those in similar situations.
provide a voice to improve the information, pathways, help and support available.
A friendly, supportive circle has been formed of those living with dementia and their carers. When guidelines permit we meet in small groups in a hall, or at an accommodating local Garden Centre. We welcome anyone who would like to meet up with us. We are flexible and adaptable and we will try and accommodate whatever comes our way. Please get in touch if you would like to know more about DAM.
