At the free event, Neil Mapes from Dementia Adventure will be joining the team at Perry Manor 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 the care provider 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 Perry Manor and tours of the home will also be available.
Mike Dearn, home manager at Perry Manor, said: “Recent research undertaken by Care UK has highlighted the challenges faced by family carers looking after loved ones living with dementia. A survey of 2,000 people throughout the UK showed only 18 per cent of people in the West Midlands felt they would be able to cope if a parent or close relative was diagnosed with dementia, with almost half of all respondents in the region unaware of the support available should they find themselves in the position of carer.”
“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.”
Those who attend the Dementia Adventure event at Perry Manor will also be able to pick up a copy of Care UK’s Good to Go – a free guide which 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.
