Free advice event returns to Halstead care home

November 9th 2016

A care home in Halstead is inviting the local community to its free advice-led event designed to provide support and practical advice for families caring for those living with dementia.

On Tuesday 15th November from 1pm – 3pm, Colne View will open the doors to the care home for its Understanding dementia event.

Dr Nori Graham, a dementia specialist, will be on hand to help people understand what it might be like to live with dementia. There will be information on what dementia is and how memories are lost, as well as useful tips on how to overcome communication barriers – with the aim of helping 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 the event will also have the chance to meet the team at Colne View and take a tour of the care home.

Omar Taylor, home manager at Colne View, said: “At Colne View 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.  With the team here committed to offering advice and practical support, we are delighted to invite members of the local community to our Understanding dementia event. 

“Previous events have proven to be incredibly popular, so we are looking forward to welcoming local people to Colne View for what promises to be another interesting and inspiring afternoon of information and guidance.”
