Did you know that every three minutes someone in the UK develops dementia. Despite almost all of us knowing someone affected, two-thirds of people living with dementia report feeling isolated and lonely.
This Dementia Action Week, Alzheimer’s Society is encouraging you to start a conversation; whether it’s calling a relative with dementia or visiting a neighbour, it’s time to start talking. To support this aim Ocean is staging a series of staff and resident events, the dates for which are below:
• Rialton Heights – 22.05.19 at 1pm prior to bingo
• Fifield House – 23.05.19 at 11am at Chatties Coffee Morning
• Prince Charles House – 24.05.19 at 1.30pm
• Windmill House – 21.05.19 at 1.30pm
We know it can be difficult to know what to say. Visit https://www.alzheimers.org.uk/get-involved/dementia-action-week for more information and tips on how you can start a conversation.
