BME Dementia Service features in Dementia Friendly Newsletter

Touchstone’s BME Dementia Service has featured in Leeds Older People’s Forum’s Dementia Friendly Newsletter.

The newsletter features two of the projects the BME Dementia Service are working on at present; the Interwoven Histories project in partnership with Pavilion, and our West Yorkshire Playhouse partnership in which we are writing a play about the lives and experiences of our Hamari Yaadain Dementia Cafe members, as part of their Every Third Minute Festival.

Speaking about the opportunity to share their story through the play, one café member said:

 “Sometimes people can make sweeping generalisations about what it is like for people like us… I think it’s important that we challenge that and we can talk about these things.”
