Tenterden Dementia Friendly Community is a voluntary non-profit organisation that operates with the aim ‘to help all those affected by dementia in our community.’ To achieve this they coordinate and run a variety of activities within the local community that encourage members to develop or maintain active minds. These include singing sessions set up in conjunction with the local secondary school and a memory café for both carers and those living with dementia which provides networking opportunities in a relaxed social environment.
Dewar Green worked closely with Tenterden Dementia Friendly Community and those living with dementia to develop a website for the charity. This collaborative approach resulted in an unusual and innovative design using a clear, rounded layout and bright colours making it very user friendly. It provides a useful calendar of events and a range of contacts for both those living with and living alongside dementia.
