Danish delegates visited Havering to learn from the council’s award winning dementia services.
More than 15 delegates met with the Havering Dementia Alliance on Thursday (March 1) to understand how the borough supports residents and carers.
Alongside the Mayor of Havering, councillor Linda Van den Hende, the delegates toured Romford Care Centre, Harold Hill and St Francis Hospice, to see how the borough has developed dementia friendly environments.
Councillor Wendy Brice-Thompson, Cabinet member for adult social services and health, said:“We are very proud that the Danish delegation chose to visit Havering.
“The council has worked hard to create a dementia friendly community through the establishment of the Havering Dementia Alliance back in 2012.
“We now have over 90 members, including major retail outlets, GP practices, Thames Chase, Queen’s Theatre and St Francis Hospice.
“This collaboration aims to support the lives of those living with dementia and their carers.”
