Getting Market Harborough talking – care home to help local people understand more about dementia

Home news

A care home in Market Harborough is inviting the local community to learn more about dementia.

On Tuesday 10th January, from 11am-12.30pm, Oat Hill Mews, on Leicester Road, which is set to open its doors in summer 2023, is inviting members of the community to learn more about dementia by delving into the topics not usually discussed.

The session will take place at 1940s inspired café Ivy Joy’s Vintage Tea Room, on Fleckney Road.

Aimed at those caring for a loved one living with the condition, Customer Relations Manager, Mark Evans will be on hand to provide valuable insight into aspects of dementia which are often not spoken about, including behaviour changes and physical changes. Topics covered will include why individuals living with dementia might hide personal possessions, become anxious and agitated at specific times of the day, or why a lifelong vegetarian might suddenly start eating meat.

The session will also discuss the types of support available for at home carers and advice for engaging with a loved one living with dementia.

The educational event follows the launch of Care UK’s free guide, Let’s Talk About Dementia, which offers insight and guidance in an easy-to-read Q&A format. Tapping into more than 40 years of experience providing care for people living with dementia, the guide includes knowledge from Care UK’s experts, including Home Managers and team members from more than 150 care homes.

Mark Evans, Customer Relations Manager at Oat Hills Mews, said: “We understand how difficult it can be navigating the changes that come when caring for a loved one living with dementia.

“Here at Care UK, we have a wealth of knowledge and advice, and look forward to sharing this with the local community to offer comfort, guidance, and support. 

“We’re looking forward to welcoming everyone to the session to meet others in similar situations and anticipate it will be an incredibly helpful afternoon for all involved.”

Designed to enable residents to live active and fulfilled lives, while also promoting independence, the new care home, which is set to open in Summer 2023, will incorporate space for hobby and leisure activities.
