Growing old can bring challenges, both for the person who’s ageing and for their family. It can be frustrating for our loved ones because they can’t do everything they used to and feel like they’re losing their independence. At the same time, it might be worrying for their family as they might not be able to be there whenever their loved ones need them.

Check out the latest news and events from Canary Wharf
Home Instead Canary Wharf and Everyman Cinema have partnered to offer free film screenings of well-known films that are particularly suitable for older people with memory problems, their partners, family members as well as people who care for them. The cinema lights are left on low throughout the screening and the volume is lower than usual to create a softer, more relaxed feel. We give priority to people with dementia and their carers, although anyone over 60 is welcome as long as there are seats available. Doors open at 10:30am, and films start at 11:00. Screenings are free but places are limited so get in touch if you wish to attend.
The wonderful Year 3 students at Canary Wharf College kindly contributed a range of lovely Christmas presents for our clients. Many of our clients face Christmas alone, and receiving these gifts from the local school made them feel valued and special. Our thanks to teacher Ms Turner at Canary Wharf College for delivering the gifts to us, and to all of the generous and warm-spirited pupils of Year 3!
Our Later Life Planning seminar last month helped to raise the awareness of the variety of care options available and how to be able to fund this. A lucky few were able to secure one-to-one consultations with our expert guest speakers at the seminar. For those who were unable to secure an appointment or missed the event entirely you are still welcome to get in touch if you would like more information on the options available for yourself or a loved one. We can be contacted on firstname.lastname@example.org.
Have you ever wondered what you would do if you became less able to look after yourself? How would you feel if you had to leave the comfort and security of your own home because no one told you that other options were available? Illness, circumstance, or even the inevitable passage of time, can leave us vulnerable, alone, and uncertain about our future, and these questions are just a few of the hundreds that can go through a person’s mind at these critical times. Recently, the charity Independent Age published research showing that at least 400 pensioners were having to sell their homes every week to pay for their own social care. However, it’s possible to receive quality care and support at home without having to sell your house. Moreover, should you ever become unable to communicate your preferences, you can take steps now to ensure that your wishes are taken into consideration, and you can appoint people that you trust to make decisions on your behalf if needed. We can help you understand how to do all of this. Home Instead Canary Wharf, in partnership with The Good Care Group, will be holding a FREE Later Life Planning seminar with invited expert guest speakers who will be addressing all of these issues and more, as well as be available for one-to-one consultations after the presentation. Whether you are considering your own future, or would like an insight into the options available for a loved one, this event is unmissable. The seminar will be taking place on Thursday 17 October, 18:00 – 21:00, at The Cruising Association, 1 Northey Street, London E14 8BT. Spaces are filling up fast, so please book your place now: https://www.facebook.com/events/2296189323931454/?active_tab=about https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/later-life-planning-canary-wharf-tickets-71637057367 We will see you there!
Lack of knowledge about dementia leads to incorrect assumptions about its effects on the person and their family and can create negative stereotypes about how a person with dementia will behave. We want to address this stigma to make people realise that you can live well with dementia!
