Highlights from issue 2:

Reducing the risk of dementia – While it is not possible to prevent all dementias, we now know that it is possible to reduce the risk of getting dementia, possibly by up to 40%, and that in the majority of cases, dementia is caused by a mix of risk factors.

Carers’ Support Groups – Dementia Jersey currently run five Carers’ Support Groups. These free, friendly, supportive groups are open to anyone supporting or caring for a relative or friend with dementia.

Dementia Awareness Week 2023 – Events and activities planned to help raise awareness of dementia and the support available to those living with and affected by dementia in Jersey.

Our ‘Getting to know you’ feature this issue is Ronnie and our Volunteer Spotlight is on Mary Osmond who has been volunteering regularly with Dementia Jersey since 2021.
