Day 4 of the Free Dementia Workshops at Birley Fire Station

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

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 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.

Details of our next workshop are detailed below:

When? Wednesday 13th April 2016

Where? Birley Fire Station, Moor Valley, Sheffield, South Yorkshire, S20 5FA

Time? 1:00pm – 4:00pm

The last workshop saw over 25 people attend and the feedback we had 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

“On a personal note and having been a carer for over 10 years I can completely relate to this comment and this shows that community training is a massive achievement. Often, that is all people to some degree- others who relate and can share their difficulties”-                                 Lee Pearse- ARUK National Dementia Champion and was the carer for him mother.

The aim of this workshop is to provide you with a range of activities to encourage engagement and participation.

Please note that you can still attend this workshop (day 4) even if you haven’t attended previous to this.
