Understanding dementia 5

On Wednesday 22nd May, from 2pm - 4pm, Bowes House will open its doors for the Understanding Dementia event.

Dementia specialist Suzanne Mumfordwill 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 an opportunity to meet the team at Bowes House, as well as take a closer look at the care home.

Home manager, Helena Barrow, said: “Here at Bowes 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 for what promises to be an interesting and inspiring afternoon of information and guidance.”
