Preesall and St Annes Free Dementia Workshops a great success

Free Dementia workshop in Preesall
Free Dementia workshop in Preesall

During the month of July and August we have been holding further workshops based on our City and Guild’s accredited Alzheimer’s Programme. The response has been overwhelming and it shows there is a real need for practical guidance and support for people in our community. In July we held a workshop in St Annes and another in Preesall in August. They focused on the practical aspect of support carers and people diagnosed with a form of dementia at home. We covered two topics including:

-          How to encourage engagement

-          Managing behaviours

Our final FREE workshop in August will be held on Wednesday 28th August 2013 from 10am – 12pm at the Garstang Arts Centre, If you would like to book a place please call 01253 359166.
