Free dementia advice event at East Grinstead care home
A care home in East Grinstead is inviting the local community to a free event for those looking to find out more about caring for those living with dementia.
On Wednesday 6th March, from 2pm-4pm, Care UK’s Mill View, on Sunnyside Close, will open its doors for its 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 Mill View, as well as take a closer look at the care home.
Home manager, Debbie Wheeler, said: “Here at Mill View, 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.”
Mill View has been designed to deliver the very best standards of care and to enable residents to live active and fulfilled lives. The home provides full-time residential, nursing and specialist dementia care, as well as short-term respite.
