Poppies in Romsey

Remember the poppies outside Romsey URC during last year’s Romsey Festival? Well members of Greenbuttercup CIC were out and about yesterday planting some of them in the Market Place in Romsey. Around 200 knitted poppies are now in the planters surrounding Palmerston ready for Remembrance. Why not go and take a look!

Community Matters – Thank you Waitrose

The lovely staff at Waitrose, Romsey chose Romdag for their Community Matters funding. We used the money to put on a fabulous Christmas party to combat isolation for people with dementia and their caregivers. The party was a fantastic success which may not have happened without the Community Matters support.

Thank you Waitrose!

Guidance on talking dementia

Here at Romdag, we received this fantastic set of guidelines from our friend Pam at Greenbuttercup CIC (thanks Pam). She thought it might be useful not only to us at Romdag but to our community too.

Some examples:

Avoid: burden, victim or senile.

Avoid: demented and dementia sufferer – instead say: person living with dementia

If you have a spare moment to have a read through, please do. Also, share these around. Let’s get everyone speaking about dementia in the best possible way.
