Haskins Garden Centre in West End hosts event in collaboration with Sp
Haskins in West End has teamed up with Speedwell Court Care Home to host a free open event for those wanting to learn more about living well with dementia.
The event takes place on Monday May 20 from 10am in the Haskins’ Swan Room during Dementia Action Week (20-26 May). Haskins team members will be encouraged to attend in order to have a wider understanding of dementia and members of the public are also invited to attend.
There will be stalls and presentations from:
• Dementia Friends – an Alzheimer’s Society initiative, aiming to encourage community members to undergo training and become a Dementia Friend. This session will be hosted by Eastleigh Rotary.
• Day care and home support from One Community, an Eastleigh-based charity.
• Additional dementia-friendly activity groups.
Dementia Action Week aims to create a dementia-friendly UK where those with dementia do not feel excluded. In the UK alone, there are 850,000 people affected by dementia.
Haskins is located in Mansbridge Road, Gaters Hill, West End, , Hampshire SO18 3HW
