Getting Littlehampton talking – Local care home joins The Big Dementia

On Thursday 1st March, from 2pm-3.30pm, Care UK’s Darlington Court, on The Leas off Station, 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 Dementia Cafe will be hosted at Creative Heart Café, on Beach Road, by Darlington Court and is being run as a safe social space for members of the community living with dementia with entertainment and refreshments on offer.

In addition to the event, the Littlehampton 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.

Diane Tapp, Customer Relations Manager at Darlington 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 Darlington 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.
