Mental Health Conference April 2018

Home Instead Senior Care were amongst the exhibitors at 25th of April 2018 Mental Health Awareness Conference at The Leas Cliff Hall. The conference covered all aspects of mental health and mental wellbeing from pre-natal through adolescence, up to and including adults living with dementia.                                                                   

Two amazing ladies living with dementia were brave enough to go onto the stage, supported by Tracey Schneider, Kent Lead - they were able to explain the different forms of their dementia took, and how they have had to adapt their lives to enable them to remain as independent as possible.

As we work towards making people live happily in their own home,  we found these two ladies truly inspirational, we will push ourselves even harder to ensure our CAREGivers are trained to support people living with dementia, ensuring they are able to keep their independence and remain in their own homes.

Amongst the speakers were; Elaine Hanzak peurperal psychosis and bereavement, Rick Bradley Addaction mind & Body programme, Dr Eleanor Longden The Psychosis Research Unit, Ivan Rudd Public Health Specialist KCC, Shepway SportsTrust, ITVFixers, Tracey Schneider Kent Lead Living with Dementia, CllrDianeMarsh KCC Deputy Cabinet member for Adult Social Care, PCC Matthew Scott Kent Police National Lead for Mental Health, Cllr Jenny Hollingsbee Cabinet member for communities

A truly inspirational day, thank you to the organisers of this event.Real spirit of people need people.
