MPFT became involved when one of the volunteers involved with Dementia Caring attended our Board meeting to share the experienceBarry Coleman and Board members.jpgof his wife's diagnosis of, and treatment for, Alzheimer's disease.

Barry found that face-to-face networking opportunities were few and far between and described a lack of co-ordination between agencies offering support. As an integrated Trust, providing health and care services in the community, MPFT was keen to work with Barry and the other volunteers to help make change happen.
