Local care home invites Banbury residents to learn more about dementia

October 7th 2019

Back by popular demand, a local care home is inviting the community to its free event for families caring for those living with dementia.

On Thursday 24th October from 2pm-4pm, the Care UK team at Highmarket House will be joined by Gina Dutton, head of the Association for Dementia Studies at Worcester University, who will be covering a number of topics 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 and discover positive approaches to living with dementia.

At the event, there will be a chance to share experiences, meet the friendly team at Highmarket House and take a closer look at the care home.

Home manager at Highmarket House, Jo Pohl, said: “We know that it can be challenging to look after a friend or relative living with dementia. It’s natural to feel confused about the best way to help your loved one, so our event aims to offer professional knowledge and insight to those who need it – as well as providing a hub for shared experiences. 

“We want people to know they’re not alone, and we’re here to offer support. This event has proven popular in the past and we’re are looking forward to welcoming local people to the home once again for an inspiring afternoon of information and guidance.”

The home, which features 73 ensuite bedrooms, has been designed to enable residents to live active and fulfilled lives, while also promoting independence.
