The Parish Pursuit Roadshow - coming to a parish near you in 2019
Dementia can affect all ages and whilst the majority of people in Jersey living with dementia are older there is a growing number of younger people and families who are equally affected. JAA offers a range of activities and services from various locations but are increasingly aware that there are still people who cannot access our support and who might rely on the support offered via their local parish.
With this in mind and to raise awareness of dementia generally, 2019 will see JAA step out of the office and take our services on the road. Over the next 12 months JAA will visit all 12 parishes to showcase our own services and activities and those offered by our community partners. We are delighted that colleagues from the States of Jersey Police, the Occupational Therapy Department, Jersey Library and Jersey Heritage will be joining us to raise awareness, reach out into the community and enhance the lives of those affected by dementia.
During each stop we will be offering local people the opportunity to pop in for a coffee in our ‘Pop Up Café’, find out about local services and activities and talk to staff from the various teams. Members of the public will also have the opportunity to participate in JAA’s new Dementia Friends awareness session.
A full list of dates for the year is available for download below.
We look forward to seeing you.
