Dementia Action Week 2022
As part of Dementia Awareness Week - PramaLife would like to share a story from one of their long term Group Members, Jimmy Roscoe.
Jimmy was recently able to share his diagnosis story on BBC South with his supportive wife Carol Roscoe - also a long term member of PramaLife. The couple have been attending PramaLife Groups and Activies for many years now, and with guidance, Jimmy was able to be diagnosed with Dementia.
