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.”
