As part of our commitment to World Alzheimer's Month we've put together a short document listing the most common warning signs to look for if you're concerned about a loved one.
As with some many things, knowledge is the key so please feel free to download the pdf file.
Was dad the best domino player ever? Did mum love her needlecraft and crochet? A diagnosis of dementia doesn’t mean that your loved ones can’t do what they enjoy. Download our blog here about ideas for activities to live well with dementia.
One of the biggest issues affecting the well-being of old people today is social isolation. Family may have moved away and friends are no longer around so some seniors can go many days without interacting with another person. The irony is that there are a lot of groups and organisations running all sorts of brilliant activities to help and encourage older people to make new friends and stay active. The problem is that it’s often hard for these groups to get the word out.
That’s where we come in with our new What’s on Where Guides. We’ve spent the last few months collecting the details of over 200 groups and activities being run for older people in our community. From reading groups to lunch clubs, from knitting circles to gentle exercise classes and almost everything in between!
In fact there were so many great, potential entries that we've produced two separate version of the WOW Guide...
One for SOUTH MANCHESTER. This covers the Chorlton, Didsbury, Burnage, Withington area.
One for NORTH TRAFFORD. This covers the Davyhulme, Flixton, Stretford, Urmston area
The printed versions have been amazingly well received so we thought we'd make them available on-line too. If you'd like to download an electronic version just click on the link below. If you'd like your own full size paper version just give us a call on 0161 884 0562. We'll be happy to send one out to you completely free of charge.
We have experienced several local care agencies. Home Instead are by far the best!. Carers are excellent and are well matched to client and client's needs. There is great changeover if a carer changes. Very reassuring for the client. You are made to feel like a valued person not just a body that needs looking after. Carers arrive on time ready to do the job. They take time to build a proper relationship. This is how care should be. Its brilliant that Home Instead deliver what they say they will.Sue D (client's daughter)
