We were delighted to attend the Clifton Hospital Carers Open day as part of Dementia Awareness week. The event was opened by comedian Mick Miller, replacing Bobby Ball, at the last minute and was full of information and support related to and in support of Dementia.

Our Community Development Co-ordinator Lois Pell made 'old' and new friends and enjoyed the lovely refreshments and entertainment provided throughout the day. Big thanks to Sister Linda Broadbent and her team for their hospitality and warm welcome on the day and of course to Sister Valerie for (once again) baking those delicious cakes!

As experts in Alzheimer's and Dementia care, we are more than happy to speak to anyone who needs support for a loved one with Alzheimer's or other Dementias.   Whether it's for companionship for a loved one to enable their family members to enjoy some free time, or for more detailed care to enable them to continue to live well in their own home, where they are most happy and comfortable.

Our family brochures 'Helping Families Cope' and 'Alzheimer's and Other Dementias CARE'  providepractical assistance to help family carers.    The information is extracted from our CARE programme - a unique training approach that all our CAREGivers undertake when they join Home Instead Senior Care.
