Reporter Jennie Smith visited us last Friday, she spent the morning chatting to those who come to our Memories Workshop and also took time to observe the activities taking place. Jennie also spoke to the wife of one of our clients who finds our Dementia Workshop a huge support, not only to her husband, but also for herself as she is able to have some respite knowing that her husband is in very good hands and is enjoying spending time with others in a similar situation.
On the hour throughout the day Heads Up were mentioned during the news and the interviews were aired at various times.
