Wirral MP has joined
forces with Dementia Together Wirral
to call for more volunteers to get involved and help out at events that
the organisation puts on to support people from across Wirral who live
with dementia and their carers.
Greenwood, MP for Wirral West, recently attended Dementia Together Wirral’s
Memory Café at Flissy’s in Thurstaston which takes place on the second
Wednesday morning of every month.
Together Wirral is also
involved in fundraising for dementia friendly cafés and puts on activities such
as singing, cinema and other pastimes. It runs information stalls promoting and
sign-posting both its own services and those of others at local festivals,
assisting newly diagnosed people with information.

dementia and their carers the opportunity to socialise and share experiences in
a friendly and supportive environment.
Memory Café is just one of the many and varied regular events that Dementia
Together Wirral puts on.
