A new chairman has been appointed at the Felixstowe Dementia Action Alliance (FDAA) ahead of the association’s third anniversary.
Funeral director David Button has taken over chairmanship of the organisation replacing Helen Greengrass.
Button said: “Our plan is to work with the community, young and old, to make a dementia-friendly generation, whilst raising awareness of its effects on the person and family carers.
“While raising awareness and offering support will always be important, we must go further to create change in communities. Whether big or small, actions can make everyday life better for people living with dementia.”
Felixstowe is pioneering in its commitment to become a dementia friendly town and currently there are over 40 alliance members and over 800 dementia friends in town.
The Felixstowe Dementia Action Alliance was formed in 2015 to act against dementia in the community.
