Introducing our new project: the dementia engagement programme 2024
OCA, the Central Oxford Mosque Society (COMS), Oxford Health Biomedical Research Centre (OHBRC) and Alzheimer’s Research UK (ARUK) will work together to improve the experiences of Oxford’s Muslim community in relation to dementia prevention, treatment and care.
A few days ago, on the 19th of January, Shona Forster (OHBRC) and Katie Thomas (ARUK) joined us at the Mosque to introduce this new programme to the local community. Will be visiting regularly, engaging visitors and presenting this project and all of OCA’s work around physical health and wellbeing.
We hope, over time, to built trust in the local community to have conversations with us about their experiences and concerns in relation to dementia.
