Extra dates to keep in mind
LLANELLI MP Nia Griffith recently visited the Llanelli and Kidwelly-based wellbeing group Ty Golau to welcome a new weekly session for people with memory problems.
Ty Golau, which provides support and activities for people living with conditions like Alzheimer’s and dementia, is holding a new session every Thursday from 2pm to 3.30pm in the Antioch Centre. This is in addition to Thursday morning sessions here from 10.30am until noon and a regular Wednesday morning session at the same time in Kidwelly’s Neuadd Mynyddygarreg Hall.
Ms Griffith, said: “I know how much of a difference the activities they run make to the people who attend and the carers. The organisation is staffed entirely by volunteers, and it was inspiring to see the work they do for our community.”
Janet Lewis, a retired occupational therapist and manager of Ty Golau, said: “I started Ty Golau almost 10 years ago when I became aware that there was a lack of community services for people with dementia and carers locally. The sessions have been very successful, and we are now a recognised centre of support for people with memory problems.”
