Home Instead Senior Care in Sutton highlighted Dementia Awareness Week by offering 3 free family carer workshops to interested participants in the borough. Two of the sessions were held at Sutton United Football Club where the company are Associate Sponsors and the third took place in the Riverside Community Centre in Carshalton.

The sessions, which were all very well received, covered a brief outline of the different types of dementia, their symptoms and behaviours displayed. The second part of the session offered the participants examples of methods that could help manage some of the more difficult and potentially disruptive behaviours they may encounter.

Tony Ward will be running more of these on a monthly basis and anyone who is interested in taking part should contact him on 020 8773 7660 or email tony.ward@homeinstead.co.uk.
