Businesses will be displaying a poster and encouraging people to ‘Go Blue for Dementia’ by showcasing blue LED lights in their windows.
Individuals are asked to take a photo of themselves next to one of the posters or share a relevant photo with Visiting Angels on social media.
Businesses or individuals wishing to participate can display blue LED lights in their windows, or contact Visiting Angels on social media.
