Drop in sessions for Dementia Action Week

People from Wales who would like more information on dementia or have any questions regarding care can drop into our offices this month (May, 2018) for free advice.

We are supporting Dementia Action Week, which takes place from May 21 until 27, and will have expert staff on hand to answer any questions people might have.

Being faced with a friend or relative who may be showing signs of dementia can be scary and many people don’t know where to turn. If anyone has any concerns they are welcome to drop into our offices or give us a call for some expert advice from our team during Dementia Action Week.

We’re also available to talk to anyone who might be interested in our services as we provide domiciliary and live-in care for elderly and vulnerable people as well as those with dementia.

The drop in sessions will take place as follows:

  • Bangor – Friday May 25 from 1pm until 3pm at 9 Ash Court, Parc Menai, Bangor, Gwynedd, LL57 4DF or people can call 01248 677919.

Dementia Action Week, which was previously known as Dementia Awareness Week, was started by the Alzheimer’s Society and encourages people who are worried about dementia to confront their worries by addressing dementia directly and getting information and support.

There are currently 850,000 people with dementia in the UK and the number is set to rise to one million by 2021.

We have a committed dementia team and we offer one-to-one bespoke support for people living with dementia so they do not need to leave their familiar surrounding or pets.

A service user’s family, carers and the person with dementia (where possible) are always involved in developing a care plan based on person-centred care. Their knowledge and understanding of the person is extremely valuable to make sure the care plan is right for the individual.
