Christians on Ageing Dementia Network
Over the years we have developed a particular concern for the pastoral and spiritual care of persons with dementia. We have a Dementia Network of over 300 members. The Dementia Network has built significant working links with other organisations majoring on dementia such as Methodist Homes (MHA), Faith in Older People (Edinburgh) and Faith in Elderly People (Leeds). The Chair of the Network is Rev. Dr Margaret Goodall (firstname.lastname@example.org) and the Secretary is Rev. Dr Albert Jewell (email@example.com). Membership is free and members receive a twice-yearly Dementia e-Newsletter.
