Free event to help Stowmarket community understand dementia

September 21st 2015

A free event to help the Stowmarket community learn more about and understand dementia will take place at Care UK’s Cedrus House care home in the Cedars Park area on 23rd September, from 12noon - 3pm.

The Understanding Dementia event at Cedrus House will be hosted by Rachel Niblock from Dementia Adventure, who will provide practical tips and advice to local residents who currently care for a loved one living with dementia. Rachel will explain what dementia is and how memories are lost, as well as looking at ways to overcome communication barriers and discover positive approaches to living with dementia.

Michelle Webster, home manager at Cedrus House care home, said: “It is really important for family carers to be equipped with plenty of support when caring for loved ones living with dementia. By hosting a free event on the subject, we can provide people in Stowmarket with expert advice and give them a chance to find out more about dementia services in the area.”

Those who attend the event will also be able to pick up copies of Care UK’s free guides which are full of practical hints and tips to support family carers and their loved ones. These include ‘Listen, talk, connect’, ‘As Easy as ABC’ and the new ‘Good to Go’ guide which provides tips and encouragement to help family carers enjoy outings with their loved ones living with dementia.
