People caring for loved ones with dementia are being invited to a free seminar at Care UK’s Lennox House care home, in Islington, where dementia experts will give advice on the condition which affects one in six people over the age of 80 nationwide.
On Saturday 21st September – World Alzheimer’s Day - dementia experts from Care UK will join representatives from the Alzheimer’s Society and support groups within the borough at Lennox House between 10am and 1pm. Together they will offer information about dementia as well as practical advice on improving a loved one’s wellbeing.
Home manager Florence Clarke said: “Quite often people caring for a loved one are working and as well as the stress of caring and supporting their own family they have the emotional challenge of seeing their parent’s behaviour change. This can be upsetting and highly stressful.
“We hope that by offering practical advice, support and a friendly ear we can show people that there is a way forward and that they are not alone.”
As well as advice on dementia there will also be the opportunity to talk to an independent financial adviser with experience of helping families and individuals plan for long-term care.
Visitors will also have a chance to pick up a free copy of the Care UK book As Easy As ABC – a guide to fun activities which increase the wellbeing of people with dementia. For those who cannot attend the seminar the book can be downloaded at www.careuk.com.
The event is free and visitors are welcome to drop in at any time during the session. There will also be tours of the Durham Road home.
