His Excellency and Lady McColl, as Patron of Jersey Alzheimer’s Association hosted a lunch at Government House on Wednesday 24 February to launch the initiative Meals for Memories.
The Meals for Memories project aims to combine social occasions with discussion about dementia and to learn more about the work of the Jersey Alzheimer’s Association. All the guests attending the lunch at Government House have pledged to host further Meals for Memories.
The Meals for Memories Project
There are 3 core elements in a Meals for Memories event:
1.family, friends, neighbours, colleagues are invited to gather at a meal – it can be any kind of meal, lunch, dinner, afternoon tea, breakfast, a picnic, a home cooked meal, or a meal in a restaurant or a beach café…
2.during the meal, the guests spend some time discussing dementia and the impact it has on individuals, on families, on our Island community. Information supporting the project can be downloaded from the website, or printed copies are available;
3.the guests will learn more about the work of Jersey Alzheimer’s Association and how their donation will support this work.
