Getting Church Crookham talking

On Wednesday 13th March, from 3pm-4.30pm, Care UK’s Bourley Grange, on Bourley 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 Let’s Talk about Dementia session will be led by dementia expert Sajal Rai who will shine a light on some aspects of dementia that are often overlooked, as well as why a loved one's behaviour may have changed and what you can do to support them.

In addition to the event, the Church Crookham 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.

Racquel Merdegia, General Manager at Bourley Grange, 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.
