Dementia Friendly Initiatives

The parish is striving towards being a Dementia friendly parish ensuring all of its events and activities are accessible to those living with Dementia.
Regular twice yearly masses are held at the care homes in our parish coordinated by a small team and led by the parish priest.
The Diamond Club coordinator is a Dementia champion who is able to deliver Dementia awareness sessions to parish groups as well as outside organisations.
The Diamond club were recognised by Lewisham Borough council as a Dementia Friendly organisation in 2016.
Any knitters are welcome to knit Twiddle Muffs a sensory aid promoted by the Alzheimer’s society to help reduce agitation and provide comfort to those living with Dementia. Patterns available by going on the Alzheimer’s society web site. Get in touch when complete and the parish will arrange for them to be gifted to our local care homes.
