‘The Cameos’ have changed their name to Camden Minds, which they feel suits the group much better.
The Camden Minds have been working with Age UK Camden to make sure their pamphlets about dementia services are dementia friendly. Camden Minds members have also taken part in research with a PhD student, Nicole Batsch, from King’s College London. The group members participated in a focus group to discuss “living and coping socially in everyday life”.
The Camden Minds are planning to work with school children to develop a Camden Minds logo and pamphlet. The group are also planning to work with a comedian to develop a short stand-up comedy show about living with dementia. Camden Minds members feel that comedy is a great way to break down barriers!
