Darlington Court is inviting the local community to a free event for families and professionals caring for those living with dementia.
On Wednesday 27th February, from 2pm - 4pm, Darlington Court will open its doors for the ‘Understanding Dementia’ event.
Dementia specialist, Suzanne Mumford, will be on hand to help people understand what it’s like to live with dementia, and 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 Darlington Court, as well as take a closer look at the care home.
Home manager, Nikki Burke, said: “Here at Darlington Court,we strongly believe professional knowledge, insight and shared experiences can make a real difference to the everyday lives of those looking after someone 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 the local people of Rustington for what promises to be an interesting and inspiring afternoon of information and guidance.”
