Local care home joins The Big Dementia Conversation

On Monday 26th February, from 2pm-4pm, Care UK’s Clara Court on Courthouse Road is inviting members of the community for a special event as part of The Big Dementia Conversation – a nationwide initiative designed to encourage people to talk about dementia, including some of the most difficult topics associated with the condition.

According to a recent survey, commissioned by Care UK, eight in ten adults believe dementia is still misunderstood, with 69 percent of the nation believing it’s a subject which is not talked about enough in society. Many people also admit finding the condition uncomfortable to discuss –something Care UK is hoping to change by launching The Big Dementia Conversation.

The Adjusting to a Diagnosis of Dementia session at Clara Court will be led by dementia expert Barbara Stephens, Co-Founder and CEO of Dementia Pathfinders, and will provide insights into the journey of dementia following a diagnosis and offer advice on how to live practically and positively with the condition.

In addition to the event, the Maidenhead community can also visit a newly launched online advice hub. The hub takes a closer look at some of the less-talked-about symptoms of dementia, with expert advice from Care UK’s dementia specialists, who have more than 40 years of experience providing care for people living with the condition.

Gladys Chironga, Home Manager at Clara Court, said: “Dementia affects millions of lives every year, not just those diagnosed but also their families and friends. We understand how difficult it can be navigating the changes that come when caring for a loved one living with dementia, and the many questions people have.

“Here at Clara Court, we recognise the importance and value of talking to one another, whether that be sharing advice or concerns, seeking support, or sometimes simply having someone there to listen. The Big Dementia Conversation offers the perfect opportunity for families to come together.
