Rowena is one of 50 worldwide Purple Angel Ambassadors. This is a voluntarily movement started by Norman McNamara, who has dementia, in Torquay to raise awareness among the public of this condition. They now produce lots of information and encourage patience and understanding in many different ways.
The Purple Angel stands for hope, protection, inspiration and universal teamwork and since it’s launch the logo has been adopted and shared by 1000’s of people who care about dementia related illness and want to help raise awareness.
The website www.purpleangel.org.uk has been created by volunteers and as a non profit organisation it’s aim is to share knowledge, inspire and empower those living with dementia.
