About Us

REPoD is a joint initiative between members of various Rotary Clubs who have recognised the need for increased support in the community for families affected by dementia.  The current estimate is 850,000 people living with dementia in the UK today, a number forecast to double within a generation.

Dementia is a condition that has a devastating effect on both the person living with the disease and their loved ones both young and old.

REPoD believes that either by working as a Club or within a wider community initiative, there are many ways Rotarians can make a positive difference to people whose lives have been affected by dementia and social isolation.

Social isolation is often a byproduct of dementia, but many people can become socially isolated due to other health and personal circumstances

We work very closely with the key Dementia Charities across the Great Britain and Ireland and will share details of their forthcoming campaigns within this website and on our Facebook site.

The REPoD message is spreading far and wide and not just within the UK we sit on the Board of the Alzheimer's & Dementia Rotary Action Group with links to Rotary partners throughout the world.

We now have a number of contacts in the USA who have taken inspiration from this web site and used our Memory Café Start-up Guide.

Rather than re-inventing the wheel we will also be sign posting some of the excellent existing sites that provide medical and practical support.  Just follow the links to be taken directly to the relevant web sites.
