A care home in Stansted is inviting the local community to its free event designed to provide support and practical advice for families caring for those living with dementia.
On Tuesday 29th November, from 10.30am to 12.30pm, the team at Mountfitchet House will open the doors for its free 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.
After the event there will be a Q&A session, and those who attend will also have the opportunity to meet the team at Mountfitchet House and take a tour of the care home.
Mountfitchet House home manager, Allison Squires, said: “At Mountfitchet House 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 Mountfitchet House for what promises to be another interesting and inspiring afternoon of information and guidance.”
