Sherwood Grange helps Kingston Vale residents to understand dementia

October 19th 2018

Back by popular demand – Sherwood Grange is inviting the local community to its free event for families caring for those living with dementia.

On Wednesday 31st October, from 2pm-4pm, the team at the home on will open the doors to the community for the return of its popular Understanding Dementia event.

Dementia specialist, Dr Nori Graham, 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 a Q&A session and the opportunity to meet the friendly team at Sherwood Grange, as well as take a closer look at the care home.

Rick Mayne, home manager at Sherwood Grange 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 how to behave, and our event aims to offer professional knowledge and insight to those who need it – as well as provide 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 them to the home for an inspiring afternoon of information and guidance.”

 

Our state-of-the-art purpose-built care home in Kingston Vale in South West London provides a wide range of quality care in stunning surroundings.
