Local care home invites Stroud residents to learn more about dementia

September 19th 2019

The team at Scarlet House are inviting the local community to its free event for families and professionals caring for those living with dementia.

On Thursday 26th September from 2pm-4pm, the Care UK team at Scarlet 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 Scarlet House and take a closer look at the care home.

Home manager at Scarlet House, Kate Stevens, 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. We look forward to welcoming local people to the home for an inspiring afternoon of information and guidance.”

To book your place at this free event, call 01453 807 241 or email customer relations manager, Katerina Pippi, at katerina.pippi@careuk.com
