Spotlight on memory changes
As dementia progresses, it affects people’s ability to store and retrieve information as the memory becomes less efficient
This is an opportunity to focus specifically on some of the memory challenges which can occur for a person with dementia and some ideas and strategies to support these challenges. It will provide you with the confidence to try new ways to support the person and to look after yourself.
The session is for you if you would like to …
- Learn about how changes in the brain can affect memory
- Get ideas for supporting the person’s memory
- Spend time with experienced healthcare professionals who will answer your questions in a safe and supportive environment.
- Meet other people who are taking care of a friend or family member with dementia in a similar situation
Carers express the importance of sharing ideas and information, and we know that an opportunity to do this makes the information given in the session far more meaningful. However, we also know some people do not want to participate in discussions and our practitioners are fully accepting of this. Some people are also unable to attend the full 90 minutes, in this instance, please call one of our team and we can talk this through with you.
