Volunteers needed to support dementia sufferers

Have your say

Volunteers are being sought in Melton to support people suffering from dementia so they can live more fuller lives.

Those who come forward to help will be taking part in the Side by Side service run by the Alzheimer’s Society.

Suna Tilley, a regional manager of the service for the society, said: “The service enables people living with dementia to keep doing the things they love.

“We are looking to make contact with Melton people who are interested in supporting a person with dementia to get out and about in their local community.

“They might be people who enjoy visiting places of interests, museums, cinemas or attending cricket matches.”

Anyone interested in finding out more about this volunteering opportunity can email Suna at suna.tilley @alzheimers.org.uk or call her on 0116 2311113.
