Remembering those living with dementia
9:17am Friday 21st September 2012 in News
TODAY saw the launch of a new challenge to help York’s dementia sufferers in a bid by city leaders to mark World Alzheimer’s Day.
As The Press reported yesterday, GeniUS! – York’s first community open innovation forum – is calling on businesses, individuals, entrepreneurs and community organisations in the city to come up with ideas on ways that people with dementia can have more control over their lives and feel more socially included.
A selection of the most promising solutions will then be invited to make a short presentational pitch to a panel of judges during York Business Week at the Create Your Future event on November 12 at the Hospitium in Museum Gardens.
The result will be announced on the day and a budget of up to £10,000 will be made available to invest in a pilot in the city next year.
