Dementia Action Week 2018 – York Minds and Voices

Yesterday, as part of Dementia Action Week 2018, DEEP UK group, York Minds and Voices were at York Railway station to unveil their new banner, and raising awareness of the rights of people with Dementia.

They were joined by Philly Hare Rachael Litherland and Damian Murphy from Innovations in Dementia, Tony Husband, Ian Beesley, Wendy Mitchell, TMS York Brass group, the media and many others for the big reveal


“The right to a grand day out” is in part a reference to a day out by train that York Minds and Voices undertook recently and the challenges they encountered.

It’s “Dementia Action Week” this week and as Jayne Goodrick said yesterday at the Alzheimer’s Society Conference

“Everything has changed, and nothing has changed”

sad, but a true reflection on 21st Century Britain.
