As part of the strategic work / planning for Dementia, Public Heath are making a request for two champions from Smethwick for Dementia Action Week (11 – 17 May 2020). Two representatives from each of the six towns are also required to take part in a Virtual Dementia Tour, 12 May 2020.
The tour allows a person with a healthy brain to experience what dementia might be like. In return, the representative will be asked to share the experience locally and become a Dementia Champion.
What you need to do
Write to Public Heath explaining why you want to attend the Virtual Dementia Tour, and outline how it will help you make a difference in your community. You must be free to attend the session for the full duration, 3.00 pm – 5.15 pm, on 12 May. Participants will be required to fill a short medical questionnaire before they take part in the activity. Letters of interest must be received by 27 March. Successful participants will be informed on 10 April.
Letters of interest should be sent to:
Senior Commissioning Manager for Dementia
