Welcome to Dementia Friendly Parishes around the Yealm
Celebrating ten years of support
Five rural Devon communities making a big difference to people living with dementia and their families – enabling them to remain active and involved in community life.
See the impact we are making in the parishes of Wembury, Brixton, Yealmpton, Newton & Noss and Holbeton.
“We can’t change the person living with dementia but we can change the experience they have in their community”

“This project makes me feel a part of something. It gives me the support of people who understand the situation along with laughter and a sense of camaraderie.
“Everywhere in the country should have a service like this exemplary one. This is what our elderly citizens deserve. They have given to us and we should give this type of care back to them.”
“This project was a lifeline for my mum and me. It enabled her to continue socialising in her community and enjoying the things she loved with people who greatly supported and cared for her.”
