Getting Quorn talking

On Wednesday 28th February, from 2pm-4pm, Care UK’s Lonsdale Mews, on Farley Way, 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 Living well with dementia event at Lonsdale Mews will be led by dementia expert Sylvie Silver who will provide guidance on how to keep the brain stimulated and stay active, while sharing her top tips to maintain a healthy diet and live a meaningful lifestyle.

In addition to the event, the Quorn 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.

Toby Sturgess, Home Manager at Lonsdale Mews, said: “Here at Lonsdale Mews, 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 – which is why we’re thrilled to be taking part in The Big Dementia Conversation.
