Welcome

 

Welcome to Bristol Dementia Action Alliance (BDAA). We were formed on the 9th July 2013 as a result of a public meeting asking the question “Is Bristol a Dementia Friendly City?” Our conclusions were that, although there was a lot of support and help for people living with dementia and their carers, more could be done. Click below on “What we do” to see what we are doing to increase dementia awareness.

We have adopted the Purple Angel Campaign as our main delivery tool. This was started in Torquay by Norman McNamara, a man who has Dementia with Lewy Bodies. Following an incident in a local supermarket, where he was treated very badly, he and a few of his friends began the Campaign.

Why we do what we do

Basically, we are in the education business, our aim is to make Bristol THE Dementia Friendly City of the UK.

We do this by running dementia awareness sessions to any group or individual – for further information please see our What We Do page

There are two reasons why we do what we do:

  1. There are 850,000 people in the UK living with dementia, 4500 live in Bristol! Many people do not know what dementia is, they don’t recognise the symptoms and they certainly don’t know how to support people with dementia. People with the condition are also often in denial.
  2. The second reason we do what we do is that our Chairman’s wife,  Barbara, has had symptoms of Frontal Temporal Dementia since 1999.

So for them, it’s personal.
