Popular event returns – free dementia advice at Southampton care home
A care home in Southampton is inviting the local community to a free event for families and professionals caring for those living with dementia.
On Tuesday 28th March, from 2pm-4pm Care UK’s Ancasta Grove, on Barnes Lane, will open its doors for the Understanding Dementia event.
Dementia specialist, Dr Nori Graham, 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 an opportunity to meet the team at Ancasta Grove as well as take a closer look at the care home.
Joel Ignacio, Home Manager at Ancasta Grove, said: “Here at Ancasta Grove, we strongly believe professional knowledge, insight and shared experiences can make a real difference to the everyday lives of those looking after a loved one living with dementia.
“The aim of the event is to help people discover positive approaches to caring for loved ones and to support them to lead independent and fulfilled lives.
“We are looking forward to welcoming local people for what promises to be an interesting and inspiring afternoon of information and guidance.”
