Highmarket House helps town become dementia friendly

February 27th 2019


Highmarket House is helping to create a dementia-friendly community by hosting a Dementia Friends session.

Highmarket House

On Friday 1st March from 2pm - 3.30pm, local people can drop into Highmarket House care home on North Bar Place and learn about what it’s like to live with dementia. 

The Alzheimer’s Society’s Dementia Friends programme is an initiative to change people’s perceptions of dementia. It aims to transform the way the nation thinks, acts and talks about the condition.

During the session, dementia friends champion, Marisa Ramos, will offer expert advice and answer any questions on the specialised care offered at Highmarket House for people living with Alzheimer’s or other forms of dementia.

The team at Highmarket House will be on hand throughout the afternoon to help visitors discover the small things they can do to make a difference to people living with dementia in the community. 

Francine Summers, home manager at Highmarket House, said: “At Highmarket House we are committed to encourage others to learn about dementia, and we are really proud of the progress we have made by supporting Dementia Friends. We want to assist with educating people, but also help the community turn their knowledge into action by making our community more aware of those living with dementia. 

“We look forward to welcoming the community into our home on Friday to spread awareness of dementia at our Dementia Friends session.”
