Come along to our FREE Dementia Workshop!

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

These workshops are 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 condition. 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.

When? Wednesday 15th February 2017 1:00pm — 4:00pm

Where? Home Instead Senior Care, Room 4, Shirley House, 31 Psalter Lane, Sheffield, S11 8YL
