On the 4th September Reflections was assessed for the Dementia Inclusive Greenwich Award. We felt it was important to be part of this initiative, which is voluntary. Today we met with Angelika Welzel-Connolly (the Greenwich Dementia Action Coordinator) to be presented with our award.
We are now able to use the logo to on our website and materials.
As an organisation we are very pleased to have this award, as we feel Dementia Inclusive Greenwich is an important initiative in the borough.
Creating a dementia friendly environment can allow people to feel valued and included; they need to feel part of a community. A dementia friendly environment is not only the built/physical environment, but also the social environment. Both are equally vital to the wellbeing of the person with dementia and their carer.
You may see more information on the initiative here.

Congratulations, this is a great reward for all the hard work that the pair of you do. Although I don’t visit anymore, I did see and appreciate all the hard work that went into your afternoons.
Well Done once again, Diane
Thank you Diane. Good to hear from you – perhaps you might like to pop-in and visit the group sometime? We would be very pleased to see you and there are people you would know. Peter
Well done to both of you!
