There are plans to make Castletown a ‘dementia friendly’ area, the town’s commissioners’ chairman Kevin Weir said last Monday.
He revealed he had met Emer Wiseman, who runs home care provider service Home Instead.
‘She is working with dementia and highlighted some of the things people need help with when they go to the shops,’ he said.
‘She asked if we would support her by letting her put a display in the hall and use the hall.
‘I propose we do that – she wants the town to become a dementia friendly area.’
Dorothy Faragher pointed out Home Instead is a commercial organisation.
Clerk Eddie Convery will get more details about Home Instead’s plans.
