Rebecca Evans, Welsh Labour's Assembly candidate for Gower, has visited the Forget Me Not Dementia Day Club in Mumbles.
Forget Me Not Dementia Day Clubs were set up across Swansea in 2010 to help people with dementia and their carers. The clubs offer the chance to meet in a friendly social environment at a local base.
Rebecca Evans is a current regional Assembly Member for Mid and West Wales and has been a sponsor of both the Assembly's Cross Party Group on Dementia, and the Cross Party Group on Older People.
Rebecca Evans said: "It was a real pleasure to spend time with the Forget Me Not group. There was a warm welcome waiting for me, as well as a fun - and very competitive - game of indoor bowls.
"I take my hat off to the volunteers who run the clubs across Swansea. Their dedication and passion for ensuring that people with dementia and their carers have such a supportive and enjoyable club to be part of is wonderful."
Back in 2014, Rebecca Evans became one of Wales' first 'Dementia Friends' when she launched the Welsh Government funded Dementia Friends programme alongside Gavin and Stacey actress Ruth Jones. The programme is a trailblazing initiative that aims to improve people's understanding of dementia and its effects.
