ABOUT US

We are a Local Dementia Action Alliance covering Langport and the surrounding villages with the aim of making a more Dementia Friendly Community. Langport Area Dementia Action Alliance is a group of people representing different sectors within the local area who have come together to create a Dementia friendly community alongside local people living with dementia.

With organisations coming together to form a local Alliance there is an ambition that Langport will become a dementia friendly community. We will continue to develop and improve awareness and understanding of dementia with the result that people living with dementia, and their carers, are supported to remain independent and have choice and control over their lives.

Aims:

We want Langport to be a Dementia Friendly Community for a number of reasons:

  • We have a high number of older people living in and around the town and we want to make living here as easy and considerate as possible.

  • It makes economic sense to be known as Dementia Friendly so people with dementia and their family and carers will be more likely to use our businesses and services.

  • Langport is a very caring place and this is an extension of that.

  • We want to ensure Langport  is a friendly and inclusive place for all & somewhere people with dementia will feel welcome and safe.

  • We want to help as many people as possible in and around the town to be aware of how they can assist those affected by dementia. This includes schools, youth organisations, businesses etc.

  • We want to ensure that all businesses, organisations etc know how to contact the safe havens we have established
