Anya Court launch forget-me-not dementia support café
Anya Court, our care home in Rugby, will launch a dementia support café at the home to encourage carers of those living with dementia to get together and support each other.
The drop in dementia support café will be open the second Tuesday of every month between 2:30pm and 4:30pm and will be hosted by the care home’s Dementia Champion and Customer Relationship Manager, Karen Handley.
The first dementia support café session will commence on Tuesday 10th May.
Anya Court’s Customer Relationship Manager, Karen Handley said: “We have decided to launch a forget-me-not dementia support café at our home as one in three of us will live with dementia in our life. It is important that as a care provider we get the word out there and as a community we become more dementia friendly.
“The café will offer a support network for carers, a place they can come together and share knowledge and life experiences.
“There will also be an opportunity at some sessions to extend your knowledge of dementia further with various guest speakers.”
If you have any questions about dementia or would like to register your interest in becoming a guest speaker please contact Karen on 01788 811976 or email [email protected]
