Francis Court is inviting the community to its free event for families and friends caring for a loved one living with dementia.
On Tuesday 6th June from 2pm-4pm, the team will open the doors to the care home for its Understanding Dementia event.
Dementia specialist, Dr Nori Graham, will be on hand to help people understand what it might be 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. The aim is to help 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 will also have the chance to meet the team at Francis Court, as well as take a closer look at the care home.
Mary Ann Ballesteros, home manager at Francis Court, said: “Here at Francis Court 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.
“We are looking forward to welcoming local people to Francis Court for what promises to be an interesting and inspiring afternoon of information and guidance.”
