The team and residents at a Sanctuary Care home in Hersden have set themselves a mission to make their local community as dementia friendly as possible.
People are being invited to Meadow View Residential Care Home, to learn about the small things they can do to make a big difference to the lives of people living with dementia, tomorrow Tuesday 15 November between 6pm and 7pm.
Free Dementia Friends session
The Blackthorn Road home is hosting Dementia Friends session, an Alzheimer’s Society initiative that will not only provide people with an understanding of dementia but also show the easy ways to turn understanding into action to support those living with dementia.
The Sanctuary Care home’s activities leader Christina Yorke said: “So many people live with dementia and for some reason there is a real stigma around the subject and we want to quash this. Dementia should be talked about and those living with dementia or caring for someone with dementia should be supported by local people, so we hope as many people pop along to our free Dementia Friends session.”
For those wishing to attend the address is:Meadow View Residential Care Home, Blackthorn Road, Hersden, Canterbury, Kent CT3 4GB.
