The DAA was formed in 2013 and has grown in numbers and effect since. Currently just under 50 members representing businesses, care services, community groups and statutory organisations. Our aim is to make East Grinstead Dementia Aware so that all those living with the disease are comfortable and supported living independently for as long as possible. And that when the time comes the family is supported in making the right choices for the care of their loved one.
We offer free awareness sessions and welcome new members who want to help make East Grinstead fully dementia friendly. We currently meet online 4 times a year for sector and member updates and get involved in Dementia Action Week in May along with other events in the town.
East Grinstead Town Council supports the initiative and the Town Clerk is the Chairman.
