Fizzog's help mark Dementia Week in Dudley

A performance by a Dudley borough award-winning comedy trio will be a highlight of this year’s activities to mark national Dementia Action Week.

The Black Country sensation that is the Fizzogs will give a special tailor-made performance to people with dementia and their carers, friends and families at the Brett Young Dementia Gateway on Tuesday May 22.

This is one of a number of activities taking place at the Dudley Council-run dementia gateways throughout the week to celebrate the national campaign, which runs from May 21 to 27.

Other activities taking place across both Dementia gateways include a tea party, and a garden party, armchair exercises, an Elvis tribute performance, musical mobility and flower arranging. Councillor Patrick Harley, leader of Dudley Council, said:

“Unfortunately there are many of us who will have personally experienced the life-changing impact dementia can have on an individual. The staff in our gateways are there to support hundreds of people with dementia and their carers and families as they face the daily challenges of living with the condition.

“Throughout Dementia Action Week we want to give them the opportunity to put all that to one side and concentrate on spending some quality time together in a fun and friendly environment.”

Dudley Council runs two dementia gateways – Brett Young Centre in Halesowen and The Crystal Gateway in Brierley Hill. 

They offer information and advice to support people diagnosed with dementia, their families and carers. They offer preventative services along with respite and long-term support, which can include day sessions at the gateways.

If people would like to find out more about the dementia gateways and what support may be available for a loved one they can contact 01384 816039 or go to the Dudley Council website.
