Free dementia advice event at Knebworth care home

September 10th 2019

Knebworth  is inviting the local community to a free event for families caring for those living with dementia.

On Thursday 19th September, from 2pm-4pm, Care UK’s Knebworth, on London Road, will open its doors for its Dementia Awareness event.

Dementia Champion, Colette Moreira-Henocq, 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 complimentary refreshments and an opportunity to meet the team at Knebworth, as well as take a closer look at the care home.

Home manager, Vera Moreira-Henocq, said: “Here at Knebworth, 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.”

Knebworth has been designed to deliver the very best standards of care and to enable residents to live active and fulfilled lives. The home provides full-time residential, nursing and specialist dementia care, as well as short-term respite.
