Helga Rohra Chair of EWGPWD writes about being patron of “Move for Dementia” event

Sunday 04 September 2016

On the 4th of September 2016 the event “move for dementia” took place.

It was organised by a community in Enger, Germany, with Mr Guenther Niermann and his team in charge.

As chair of the European Working Group of People with Dementia (EWGPWD) and being myself a person living with dementia, I was invited to be the patron.

The event was held to raise awareness and to show solidarity for people with dementia.

Eleven different European countries (Netherlands, Luxembourg, Belgium, Austria, Spain, Greece, Poland, Lithuania, Switzerland, Italy and Germany) took part in "move for dementia". All generations from kindergarten to people in nursing homes were active - walking or jogging.
