One of our Certificates of Appreciation

St James the Great in Aslackby became the first Church in Lincolnshire to receive a Dementia Friendly Certificate yesterday.

It was presented by Dementia Support South Lincs chairman Heather Gilling, at the Patronal Festival.

Heather said, “When our friends with dementia and their carers come to your church, they feel they are among friends who have an understanding of dementia and want to help them in a kindly and discreet way. You see the person, not the dementia, and that is so important”.
