Members Meeting Thursday 20th July

Our Speaker for July was Dr Elizabeth Milwain.

Elizabeth is a Director of  The Memory Tree CIC - a small not-for-profit organisation that she founded in 2012, providing specialist support about dementia to local communities, drawing on her background as a research psychologist working in the dementia field since 1996.

Elizabeth explained to us how various diseases of the brain cause dementia and that Alzheimers is just one of these diseases. She outlined key facts about dementia, signs to look out for and simple things we can all do to help both people affected by the condition and their families to build a dementia friendly community.

This was an excellent meeting. It was very well attended and we all came away much wiser.
