Dementia Action Week 2019
In order to raise awareness and show our support for those with Dementia, the surgery team had a 'Wear something purple for Dementia' day on Wednesday 22nd May 2019 in exchange for a donation to the Garstang Memory Café.
During the week members of our PPG (Patient Participation Group) had a 'Listening stand' in the main foyer with the aim of raising awareness and providing information and support for those with Dementia and their carers.
The donations raised by our staff were presented to Sandra Perkins, a member of our PPG and co-ordinator of the Garstang Memory Cafe. Sandra was absolutely thrilled by the gesture.
