Dementia bus visits the Western Vale

The Alzheimer’s Society, Cardiff and Vale, is running a six month pilot project during 2012 taking their Information and Support Bus (nicknamed ‘Primrose’) to four areas in the Western Vale of Glamorgan. 

Primrose will be visiting Cowbridge, Rhoose, Llantwit Major and St Bride’s Major on one Friday every month for the next 6 months. 

The aims of the project are twofold:

For people who may have concerns about their memory to get information on dementia and the referral and diagnosis processes in a safe environment.

For people who are already caring for someone to access ongoing information, support and signposting to all other support services available to them.

There will be a member of Alzheimer’s Society staff on the bus, who can provide information and support. Anyone who has concerns is welcome to visit the bus.

Venues and times for the bus are as follows:

Cowbridge Council car park: 27th January; 24th February; 23rd March; 20th April & 18th May

Rhoose Social Club car park: 3rd February; 2nd March; 30th March; 4th May; 1st June

Llantwit Major, Filco car park: 13th January; 10th February; 9th March; 13th April; 11th May; 8th June
