This year's Dementia Action Week, starting on 15th May, will see a series of special events in Enfield run by organisations that belong to Enfield Dementia Alliance.

Writing in Enfield Dispatch, Janice Nunn from the Alliance stresses the importance of not ignoring what may be early symptoms of dementia:

Being diagnosed with dementia at an early stage gives you a chance to adjust and unlock the door to things you need such as access to practical guidance, legal advice or financial support.

Tuesday 16th May: JaZanne Arts present an immersive arts experience including music, song and dancing at Park Avenue Disability Resource Centre, 65c Park Avenue, Enfield EN1 2HL. From 2-3pm. Everyone will be welcome.

Jacqui Livingston will be performing excerpts from Jazanne Arts' touring reminiscence theatre 'Exchanging Dreams'. Jacqui will take the audience on an interactive journey sharing memories from the Caribbean and UK, inviting the audience to singalong to popular songs and inviting them to join in with the dancing. The show is particularly suitable for people born in the 40s, 50s and 60s and goes from childhood memories, to dancing days, visits to the seaside to singing in the rain.

The show was created with the help of a range of people who shared their stories, memories and favourite songs. 'Exchanging Dreams' is particularly suitable for people living with dementias and their families/carers, with plenty of music, projected photos and film, objects and smells to stimulate memory and most importantly, spread joy.
