Billericay Dementia Action Alliance

20 May 2019

In a bid to create a more dementia friendly community, the first launch meeting for the Billericay Dementia Action Alliance was held at Anisha Grange Care Home in April 2019. A total of 14 local businesses attended the meeting to discuss ways they could help people have a better understanding of dementia and the small changes they could do to make a difference.

This group's vision for the future is one in which: “People living with dementia in Billericay are recognised as unique individuals who are actively shaping their lives and continue to play an important role in their local community.”

Spire Hartswood Hospital Director, co-founder, and member of the steering board of the Billericay Action Alliance group, Jo Dean says: “I am delighted to be a founding member of the Billericay Dementia Action Alliance. We are a small group of businesses and community groups who want to make Billericay a truly dementia friendly community. I am so proud of the work we have done to launch BDAA and delighted that we were nominated for the Essex County Council’s Who Will Care award.”

Others in attendance were Bennett’s Funeral Directors, Basildon Council Sheltered Accommodation, Billericay Town Council, Santander Billericay, Billericay Cricket Club, Hazel’s Pottery Barn, Right at Home UK, Billericay Mayflower Rotary Club and the Forget Me Not Activities Club.
