The Municipal Table of Seniors, backed by the Department of Social Services and the mayor Rosario Martínez Martínez, prepares activities for World Alzheimer's Day, which as every year is celebrated on September 21.

The activities start on Thursday September 20 with "Forum of Caregivers", a talk-workshop in the Plenary Hall of Bullas City Council by the Alzheimer Association and Other Dementias "Alzhad".

The appointment will be at 7:00 p.m., where the psychologist Laura Caballero Escámez and the Social Educator Aurora Martín Vílchez will talk about the importance of emotions in dementia, both from the point of view of the affected person, as well as the caregiver.

The next day, on Friday, September 21 will take place at 11:00 am on Avda. Gran Vía (door of the Plaza de Abastos), a commemorative act in which a manifesto against Alzheimer's and different related texts will be read.

Also, there will be a release of helium balloons and putting of commemorative ties.

In this act will be exhibited "The Tree of the Memories", an artistic installation formed by a sculpture of a tree with sheets of paper in which important memories of old people are written.

Pedestrians can also write their memories and add them to the tree.

It will have the presence of the Councilor for Social Services Rosario Martínez and the associations Amade, Alzhad, the home help company LorcaMur and the Commonwealth of Social Services will collaborate.

Continuing with Friday, at 12:00 noon will be the premiere at La Onda de Bullas of "La Voz del Mayor", a radio program made by and for older people that emerged as an idea at the Municipal Table for the Elderly and that the Association Amade has been responsible for developing.

La Voz del Mayor will have different sections in which all the members of the table and elderly people of the town will participate: sayings, news, cooking recipes, advice and interviews.

In this first delivery there will be a gathering that will clear up doubts about Alzheimer's Disease coinciding with its World Day and will expand information about the care resources that exist in the municipality of Bullas for affected families.

All this will be carried out by Juani Espinosa (AMADE psychologist), Laura Caballero (Alzhad psychologist), Ana Campoy (Social Worker of Tunstall Televida), María Puerta (Manager of Lorcamur home help company) and will be driven by Juani Sánchez, announcer of the Onda de Bullas.

The City of Bullas, the Municipal Table for the Elderly and all its members invite the people of Bullas and the surrounding area to participate in these activities that aim to raise awareness about the problems generated by dementias and specifically Alzheimer's Disease, which unfortunately they live more and more families every day.
