Free advice event comes to Sherwood Grange

September 1 2017

Sherwood Grange is inviting the local community to its free event for families caring for a loved one living with dementia.

On Thursday 21st September from 10am-12 noon, the team at Sherwood Grange will open the doors to the care home on Robin Hood Lane for its ‘Understanding Dementia’ event.

Dementia specialist, Debbie Fox, will be on hand to help people understand what it might be like to live with dementia. There will also be support and practical advice on what dementia is and how memories are lost, as well as useful tips on how to overcome communication barriers. The aim is to help people discover positive approaches to caring for loved ones living with dementia. 

After the event there will be a Q&A session, and those who attend will also have the chance to meet the team at Sherwood Grange, as well as take a closer look at the care home.

Rick Mayne, home manager at Sherwood Grange, said: “Here at Sherwood Grange we strongly believe professional knowledge, insight and shared experiences can make a real difference to the everyday lives of those caring for loved ones living with dementia. 

“We are looking forward to welcoming local people to Sherwood Grange for what promises to be an interesting and inspiring afternoon of information and guidance.”
