Arnold and Julie decided to set up the City of Wells Dementia Action Alliance after the shops in Wells showed Arnold's mother such kindness and assistance as she struggled living alone and trying to cope with her dementia.

The year before Sybil went into residential care was a huge struggle. Julie and Arnold found it very difficult to find out what support networks existed and where practical help and advice could be found. They set out to ensure others would find help more easily and that there would be a greater understanding of dementia across the community in Wells.

Their first step was to make the Pilgrim team “Dementia Friends” and following on from that Arnold and Julie established the Dementia Action Alliance Committee. You will see from the following articles that much has been achieved.
