Waving the flag for dementia services…..

As part of the annual Stevenage Day event this month, local organisations were invited to get involved in creating flags to represent their work in the town.

It was great to be invited along to the Intro Evening where the initial plans were set out. The idea was to have a flag for older peoples services which included dementia but, at we always say at The Red Shed…. ‘dementia does not just affect older people and older people don’t all get affected by dementia’…Pleased to say our suggestion of a separate flag for dementia services went ahead and after getting in touch with other organisations – we created something special to highlight our presence in Stevenage.

Above is the wonderful outcome – it’s big and beautiful and contains the logos for Open ArtBox, Music 24, Imagination Dance, Hertswise and Hertswise Young Onset Dementia, GEMMS…and of course The Red Shed. It’s a good start to highlighting the presence of valuable and varied dementia friendly activities and services in the town.
