At the free event, Neil Mapes from Dementia Adventure will be joining the team at Mill View to share his knowledge and provide practical tips for those caring for someone living with dementia. Neil will help people to understand the condition, learn how memories are lost and give guidance on how to overcome communication barriers.
The free event is part of an ongoing partnership between Care UK and Dementia Adventure and is designed to help family members and carers gain a clearer understanding of dementia. After the event, Neil will be on hand to answer any questions and there will be an opportunity for members of the public to meet the carers at Mill View and take a tour of the home.
Speaking about the event, Cindy Luscombe, home manager at Mill View, said: “At Care UK, we understand being armed with plenty of expert advice and information can make all the difference for those caring for loved ones living with dementia.
“By inviting Dementia Adventure to host this free event in partnership with Care UK, we can ensure this information is communicated clearly and concisely, with visitors having the opportunity to speak directly to the professionals in this area as well as team members from the care home.”
Dementia affects 850,000 people in the UK and 25 million people have a close friend or family member living with the condition. 75 per cent of Care UK’s residents are living with various stages of dementia and we offers extensive dementia training programs for all team members to ensure residents receive the highest quality care.
Those who attend the event will also be able to pick up their copy of our Good to Go guide. The free guide highlights how important it is for those living with dementia – and their carers – to get out and about, and the emotional and physical benefits of staying active.
