How to Support Those Living with Dementia

Anne Child MBE and Debbie Hollands of the Royal Masonic Benevolent Institution Care Company

At the regular meeting of the Lodge of Light and Honour No 7894 on Monday, 10 February, the 55 Brethren in attendance listened with great interest to a talk entitled ‘How to support those living with Dementia’; presented by Anne Child MBE and Debbie Hollands of the Royal Masonic Benevolent Institution Care Company.

The talk was followed by a Q&A session and, judging by the amount of questions asked, it was obvious that this was a subject that many of the attendees could relate to in some way or other. Information packs were distributed to all those in attendance.

This talk was a ‘first’ for the Lodge but, based on the feedback received from the members and visitors, is something that they fully intend to repeat on further occasions.

As a thanks for their time and a gesture of goodwill, the Lodge sent donations to the RMBI Care Company and also to Prince Michael of Kent Court, Watford; one of the many residential care homes that support Freemasons and their families suffering from this debilitating disease.
