Free advice event returns to Halstead care home

Home news

The team at Colne View will open the doors to the care home on Dame Mary Walk in Halstead on Friday 29th January for the return of its popular free 'understanding dementia' event, which has been designed to provide support and practical advice for family carers.

From 1pm to 3pm, dementia specialist Andrew Potts will be on hand at Colne View to help people understand what it might be like to live with dementia.  There will be information on what dementia is and how memories are lost, as well as useful tips on how to overcome communication barriers – all with the aim of helping people discover positive approaches to caring for loved ones living with dementia.  

Everyone who attends the event will have the opportunity to ask questions and discuss their own personal experiences, and there will also be a chance to meet the team at Colne View and take a tour of the care home.

Home manager, Omar Taylor, said:  “At Colne View we strongly believe professional knowledge, insight and shared experiences can make a real difference to the everyday lives of those caring for loved ones loving with dementia.  With the team here committed to offering advice and practical support, we are delighted to invite members of the local community to our first ‘understanding dementia’ event of the New Year. 

“Previous events have proven to be incredibly popular, so we are looking forward to welcoming local people to Colne View for what promises to be another interesting and inspiring afternoon of information and guidance.”

Colne View provides full-time residential, nursing, and dementia care, as well as short-term day and respite care.  The state-of-the-art care home recently expanded its offering with the unveiling of the Woodland Walk suite, which provides specialist dementia care for 12 older people.

For more information or to book a space at the free event, please call Colne View's customer relations manager, David Martins, or email david.martins@careuk.com
