I worked in Esat London
Bill Gibbons
40:13
I worked in East London and set up a dementia café in the mosque
Bill Gibbons
40:30
we had commissioned services from the CCG to support this
mansoora aftab
40:39
as there is no such word for dementia people from theses
mansoora aftab

communities wouldn't know
Claire Davies
42:53
I know working in hospital wards supporting people living well well Dementia, we have organised a monthly dementia friendly service which is structured and resourced to support the needs of someone with Dementia. we feel faith during such an undertaking time when living with dementia is paramount and hugely comforting for patients and families alike.
M.A Qureshi
43:38
There is a lack of knowledge of Dementia in the Asian community.
Claire Davies
43:43
I like Dementia Inclusive... that is such a valid and poignant fact and yes, totally agree.
Bill Gibbons
43:47
Mhari makes a very good point.
Bill Gibbons
44:11
I understand the use of 'friendly' is overused
Ripaljeet Kaur
46:01
I have done some focused work with different faith groups in Leeds. There were some obstacles but we did some meaningful work.
Bill Gibbons
46:52
Mohammed makes a very good point - you must work with the community - and get to know the imams in the mosque
Andrea Owen
47:14
so true
Bill Gibbons
47:33
I recommend watching a short film commissioned by Department of Health about Dementia Services in Tower Hamlets

Keith Oliver

Great comment Nigel and so true
Claire Davies
51:47
I appreciate the element of ethnic questions being raised... any individual who has been in a care environment to support living well with Dementia.... is this where a Read About Me Form should be incorporated in identifying and embracing whether faith is an important element of an individual's life. this form should follow the individual throughout their care journey and plans.
Andrea Owen
51:57
The taking-part in a group of like-minded people is obviously very important to people - can we discuss ways of maintaining that under lockdown?
mansoora aftab
53:14
I have done some work with the local mosques the Kirklees area where I had set up drop in clinics for the community memebrs to attend after prayer whi
mansoora aftab

which they found really beneficial
Jenny Hadgraft
55:32
Unfortunately I can't stay for the whole webinar, but it's been very interesting. We (FaithAction) have a very good resource, if of interest, re dementia and places of faith (I will watch the rest on the recording if it is emailed!)https://www.faithaction.net/resources/
Ripaljeet Kaur
56:44
spot on
Ripaljeet Kaur

thank you for sharing Emily
Julie Thomas

We work with a large number of churches via our DFC's. Special services for people living with dementia are not coming to these services.
Julia Burton-Jones
01:00:52
Thank you, Emily. Sad to hear your husband wasn't always made welcome in churches. Sending condolences on losing him this year. Glad you are encouraging local churches to be more inclusive and hope you can continue with this work.
Fay Freemantle
01:02:56
As a Dementia Support Worker, this is one of the questions I have to consider in my assessment of each new client. If a person has a faith, this can make a difference to the kind of support I can suggest.
Ripaljeet Kaur
01:03:54
I believe introducing advance care planning would hugely help people with dementia and their carers.
Debbie Anderson
01:05:10
Completing life story books can really give a rounded view of what is important in a life.
mansoora aftab
01:05:29
the alzs soc have created some resources around ACP and how to start these conversations
Ripaljeet Kaur
01:06:37
a lot of people I work with are using their faith to keep their anxiety levels down especially during these difficult times.
Julia Burton-Jones
01:07:39
Livability have a great resources called My Faith Matters.
Andrea Owen
01:08:18
It's not accessible enough for pwd living alone without a cohabiting carer
Debbie Anderson
01:09:31
Thank you Chris and Shelagh for sharing this story. It makes it so real
Andrea Owen
01:11:12
OK!
Fay Freemantle
01:12:34
My mother has Communion every Sunday (sadly, not since the lockdown) in her care home. We made sure to ask for this. Her Rosary (prayer beads) is also really important to her, and the staff know this. Amongst her end of life wishes are Communion and Baileys!
Julia Burton-Jones
01:13:18
Communion and Baileys! Great combination.
Julie Thomas
01:13:38
I agree
Tanya Williams
01:17:32
Lockdown has made digital exclusion worse as older people may lose ability to use computers if they ever had access to it
Mohammed
01:18:11
There is information on our website too: www.meriyaadain.co.uk/information/ including a leaflet on dementia and faith with a few tips
Adele Alzheimer's Society Dementia Voice

Emma Murdoch
01:20:55
Does the person have a CD player ? Can you record something for them to listen too ?
Emma Murdoch
01:21:44
Thank you so much, so much to think about
Ripaljeet Kaur
01:22:00
We are trying to get some of our clients online through our Digital Leeds scheme. Hoping to restart our South Asian café virtually in the next couple of weeks.
Ripaljeet Kaur
01:22:09
Thank you for great session.
Claire Davies
01:24:28
I carry it with me everywhere and footprints has absolutely been a simple and comforting resource I've turned to along with Psalm 23 which can carry you through any walk of life x goodness and mercy ALL or days x
Andrea Owen
01:24:52
Thank you
Adele Alzheimer's Society Dementia Voice
01:24:57
