May I take this opportunity through your letters page to invite those with dementia or affected by the condition to explore Leominster’s new service, the Meeting Centre.

This project is opening its doors on February 1 and will offer support, activities and stimulation for people with dementia. It is looking for attendees, made up of people with dementia and their supporters, to use the service.

The Leominster Meeting Centre is the second of its kind in the country and follows on from a successful Dutch model enabling people with dementia to remain independent for longer.

I am always eager to hear from anyone who would like to discuss the Meeting Centre. If you have a loved one with dementia then please consider this new service in Leominster.

If you would like to find out more about the Meeting Centre or are interested in becoming a member, please call 01432 371137 or e-mail
