Ludlow and the surrounding villages have an elderly population with a significant prevalence of dementia. Our countryside and heritage, and restaurants and pubs also attract a high proportion of older visitors. With age, regrettably, comes a higher prevalence of dementia. On Tuesday, 7 March, we will be hosting a public meeting to look at working towards Ludlow becoming a dementia friendly community. The meeting will be at 5.30pm in the Women’s Centre off Church Street, by the Rose and Crown.
