Free dementia advice event at Banbury care home

January 8th 2018

Highmarket House is inviting the local community to its free event for families caring for those living with dementia.

On Thursday 18th January from 2pm-4pm, the team at Highmarket House will open the doors to the care home for its Understanding Dementia event.

Renowned dementia specialist, Dr Nori Graham, will be on hand to help people understand what it is 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.

After the event there will be a Q&A session and a chance to talk with the home’s dementia champion Sally Matthews who has recently received a Dignity Council Award.  There is also an opportunity to meet the team at Highmarket House, as well as take a closer look at the care home.

Home manager, Julia Hedley, said: “Here at Highmarket House we strongly believe professional knowledge, insight and shared experiences can make a real difference to the everyday lives of those looking after a loved one living with dementia. 

“The aim of the event is to help people discover positive approaches to caring for loved ones and to support them to lead independent and fulfilled lives.

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

Highmarket House is a modern and welcoming home, with its own coffee shop, hair salon and cinema. Beautifully furnished lounges around the care home offers cosy spaces where residents can relax, or join in with the many activities taking place.
