Grey matter matters

A local group has been created which aims to support those who have worked in high-pressure jobs and are now suffering from Alzheimers, or dementia with other causes.
Liz Holdsworth, chair of PALZ UK says, “The purpose of PALZ is to provide people who’ve held demanding positions and who are now living with Alzheimers with a social environment that delivers peer support and mental challenge. These meetings aim to increase self-respect and confidence as well as providing mental stimulation.”
The group meets every two months at the Shropshire Conference Centre and offers speakers talking for around 30 minutes, along with coffee and discussion. The next meeting is on Tuesday 17 July and features Richard Bifield, whose subject will be The Best of Shropshire’s Heritage and Landscapes. If you’d like to attend, email lizaholdsworth@hotmail.com.
