Dementia advisers are to join farmers for breakfast in Pembrokeshire, and are ready to chat to anyone who would like to know more about what help is on offer for those who have had a dementia diagnosis.

The breakfasts, on Tuesday, January 22, at Canolfan Hermon, Hermon, and Friday, January 25, at Crundale Hall, have been organised by the Pembrokeshire branch of the Farmers’ Union as part of the union’s Farmhouse Breakfast week.

Dementia Advisers Heather Harrison and Maxine Ford cover all of Pembrokeshire and offer support and information about dementia.

Their referrals come mainly from the memory clinic, GPs, other organisations and self-referrals.

The information they provide is through the Dementia Connect service, which is a combination of phone, print and online support, as well as face-to-face home visits.

Both dementia advisers are able to discuss an individual’s needs and concerns and signpost to the relevant support.

Breakfast will be served from 8am to 10.30am in Hermon and 8.30am to 11am in Crundale and will cost £10 per person, with all the proceeds being split between Alzheimer’s Society Cymru and Farming Community Network.

“I hope many of you will be able to join us for breakfast. We want you to be a part of what we do, and share your thoughts and worries about the state of the industry, tell us your stories and help us to understand how we can help each other, and what better way to do that than rounda table where we share great food and have a cup of tea.

"In addition we are delighted that Heather and Maxine are joining us for breakfast, so if you have any questions about dementia, please join us on either or both of our breakfast days,” said FUW Pembrokeshire CEO Rebecca Voyle.
