Headway Suffolk has now taken over the running of a group for people with dementia in Ipswich to ensure they continue to receive the support and stimulation they need.
The group takes place on the second Friday of the month at St Augustine’s Church, Bucklesham Road in Ipswich.
Started by Age UK Suffolk in January 2015, the group is thriving. Age UK Suffolk are delighted that Headway Suffolk took over the group last month.
Headway Suffolk’s Chief Executive Helen Fairweather said: “At a time when dementia is on the increase we are really pleased to be able to maintain and further develop this valued service.’’
New members are welcome, and anyone wishing to enquire further or refer should contact us on 01473 712225 or go to the website page: www.headwaysuffolk.org.uk/neurohubs/dementiagroup.
Earlier this year Headway Suffolk announced it was to help people with dementia and their carers after being awarded a £12,500 grant from Suffolk Coastal District Council.
