Sam Rowlands MS supports training to help better understand dementia in North Wales

Sam Rowlands, Member of the Welsh Parliament for North Wales, is backing an initiative to help people think differently about dementia.

Last week, Mr Rowlands, Shadow Minister for Health and a keen supporter of Dementia UK expressed his support during National Dementia Week.

He highlighted the work which was being carried out by Betsi Cadwaladr University Health Board in helping to raise awareness of dementia and the support available for those affected.

He said: “I was delighted that BCUHB supported the campaign by offering information about dementia at stalls in hospitals across North Wales so that staff, patients and visitors were able to learn more about the illness.

“As a keen supporter of any moves which ultimately helps and supports people suffering from dementia and their families, I am also pleased to hear about free upcoming training to help people understand the illness.

“Dementia is a terrible debilitating illness and it is good to see Wrexham Council working in partnership with Dementia Adventure to offer this training.

“The online training is aimed at family and friends who support someone living with dementia and it is well worth booking your place.

“As an MS for North Wales I am always happy to support and help to highlight this illness and continue to raise awareness with Welsh Parliament.”

‘Understanding Dementia better’ is a free training session will help people to think differently about dementia and equip them with new skills and confidence.

The informal session is really practical, offering strategies, hints, tips and guidance. It has been developed around Dementia Adventure’s mission to think differently about dementia. A focus is on the individual and not the condition, looking at what they can do, not what they can’t.

The online session takes place 1.30pm – 3.30pm on Monday, June 3. Book your place on the online session through Eventbrite.

If you prefer, you can watch the session from the training room at the Wellbeing Hub. If so, we advise arriving at around 1pm to allow time to get in, grab a drink and be ready for when the session starts. There’s also an opportunity to have a chat with other carers when the session finishes, so you might want to allow some extra time for this.
