Davers Court helps Bury St Edmunds residents to understand dementia

Home news

 

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

On Thursday 27th September, from 2pm - 4pm, the team at the home will open the doors to the community for the return of its popular Understanding Dementia event.

Dementia specialist, Gillian Allatt, 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 Davers Court, as well as take a closer look at the care home.

Wendy Harvey, home manager at Davers Court said: “We know that it can be challenging looking 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.”
