Home Instead to Host Free Family Dementia Workshops

Are you caring for an ageing parent or relative with Alzheimer’s disease?

These workshops are specifically aimed at carers/families of people who are living with dementia or other dementias.

They are also proving hugely beneficial to members of the community too; who are eager to learn more about living and working with people affected by this most debilitating disease. Too often elderly people living with Alzheimer’s or one of the other forms of dementia are moved into care homes earlier than is necessary, simply because family carers feel unable to cope.

Day 1 of this workshop:

When? Monday 16th May 2016

Time? 4:30 PM – 7:20 PM

Where? Ecclesfield Parish Council Room, Mortomley Lane, High Green, Sheffield, S35 3HS

This workshop will help you:

Learn about the causes of Alzheimer’s disease or other dementias

Recognise the symptoms of Alzheimer’s disease or other dementias

Discover how Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias are diagnosed

Understand more about the behaviours that can be caused by the symptoms of Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias.

Our latest workshops at Birley Fire Station saw over 25 people attend and the feedback was extremely positive. It certainly served to reinforce the need for them:

“It feels like we have somewhere to go now”- Family carer for her husband

“Gaining an understanding of tools & techniques to keep manage mum’s dementia & having the opportunity to hear experiences of others” – Carer for his mother
