At the end of August we held our final free dementia workshop for people in the community of Garstang. It was held at the Garstang Arts Centre and attracted over 35 people including family members, the local NHS, Age UK, Singing for the Brain Groups, Stroke Association and NCompass.

We focused on the practical aspect of supporting carers and people diagnosed with a form of dementia at home. We covered two topics including:

-       How to encourage engagement

-          Managing behaviours

If you would like more information on how we can help you care for a loved one who is experiencing a form of dementia at home please do not hesitate to call us on 01253 359166.
