Connection Point

The Connection Point is a monthly opportunity for people affected by young onset dementia to come together with staff working in the different services in Worcestershire. We have activities including:

  • information and education
  • opportunities to have individual time with staff and
  • an information marketplace
  • complementary therapies
  • An alternative activity such as music, art or dance

Each month we have a different theme for our information and education sessions. You are welcome to come along to these meetings. Please see this flyer for more information.

Dementia Voice Worcestershire

Dementia Voice Worcestershire is an activist group of younger people with dementia and family members. This leaflet tells you more about our work. We welcome new members. If you are interested in finding out more about this group, please contact us. We are part of the Dementia Engagement and Empowerment Project (DEEP).

We welcome feedback and ideas on how we can improve services and support from people living with young onset dementia and family members.
