I had an amazing time on Friday visiting Holmfield Day Care Centre’s Reminiscence Village. The village is mocked up as a 1940s/50s high street and offers people living with dementia a passage back through time. 

There are over 2,500 people living with Dementia in Leicester, projects like this can make such a huge difference to their daily lives. 

But without the dedication of all the staff and volunteers none of this would have happened – so I’d like to thank each and every one of the them, especially Anne Byrne who came up with the idea and is up for this year’s Leicester Live’s Dementia Carer of the Year award!

On Friday I met with John Kemp from the Alzheimer’s Society in the East Midlands. We discussed how they were supporting patients and their families here in Leicester West. And John also told me about the charity campaigns they are running in Dementia Action week later in the year. 

The meeting followed on from an event in Parliament I held earlier in the week. Dementia is the UK’s biggest killer and I will support the work they do here in Leicester West and also right across the country in finding ways to tackle dementia and support sufferers.
