Dementia Support-The Churches of St Margaret's Benefice
The membership of the Kent Dementia Action Alliance and the more local Alliances and Dementia friendly community forums are ‘open’ to all. Organisations, businesses, groups and residents can get involved at the level which best suits them. This could be by becoming Full members, Supporters or by joining a smaller local Dementia Friendly Community forum.
There are, of course, many causes and types of dementia. One cause can be alcohol abuse, with an increasingly strong link being identified between alcoholism and dementia. Rehab Recovery are an organisation that specialise in rehab and detox services, from alcohol, drugs, eating disorders and gambling. They have an article on their website written by Ollie Clark regarding alcoholism and dementia which you can read here.. This article provides a clear insight into how alcoholism impacts the brain, and with the growing concern in the news regarding excessive, and often unrecognised, alcohol consumption in the middle aged, this is not something that should be ignored.
