As part of our pledge to Oldham’s Dementia Action Alliance, Caremark Oldham and Wrigley Claydon are running FREE ‘Let’s Talk about Dementia’ sessions for those interested in understanding a bit more about dementia and the small things you can do to help people with the condition.
A diagnosis of dementia can seem daunting but information and advice will be available for anyone who wishes to find out more about the condition and how to prepare for the challenges ahead.
Caremark Oldham will run a Dementia Friends session aiming to transform the way people think, act and talk about the condition. Stigma and lack of understanding cause many people with dementia to experience loneliness and social exclusion, so Dementia Friends hopes to tackle this by creating more communities and businesses that are dementia-friendly and more inclusive of people affected by dementia.
Wrigley Claydon will run a question and answer session aimed at meeting people’s concerns about the legalities involved when a loved-one is diagnosed with dementia covering protecting your home in case care home fees become an issue and how to manage financial and health decisions when a loved one can no longer do so themselves.
Join us for our friendly, informative sessions being held at The Conservative Club, High Street, Uppermill on Wednesday 4th July; Wednesday 18th July; Wednesday 19th September and Wednesday 10th October 2018 at 10.00am.
