The Senior Forum meeting took place recently, full meeting minutes can be viewed HERE.

Highlights included a Fall Prevention talk, thanks to Olivia for being our guest speaker:

Olivia Brewster is a qualified Pilates Instructor and Trainee Physiotherapist (Year 4).  She is looking to set up a local initiative to conduct fall prevention classes. Olivia took us through a presentation discussing the serious impact falls can have.

View the presentation here:

Dementia Friends has agreed to move back into the Senior Forum now the Alzheimer’s Society support for the programme has been withdrawn.

DF meetings tended to be face-to-face, was as SF tends to take place on Zoom. The group is happy to vary the format from time to time.

Diane is continuing to run Dementia Friends sessions and is continuing to work with other Dementia leads from other towns to create a new programme.

Next meeting 11 July via zoom.
