Chamberlain Court to launch a dementia support café – Wednesday 22nd May
Chamberlain Court, our state-of-the-art care home in Royal Tunbridge Wells, will launch a dementia support café at the home during Dementia Action Week 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 third Wednesday of every month at 2:00pm and will be hosted by the care home’s Dementia Champion and Customer Relationship Manager, Vicki Pickering.
The first dementia support café will commence on Wednesday 22nd May at 2:00pm and will be opened by Kate Sergeant, Services Manager at The Alzheimer’s Society.
Following the café, there will be taster sessions of activities the home will be running at future meetings for anyone who wants to take part including, a seated dance activity and a singing for the brain musical session.
Vicki Pickering said: “We have decided to launch a dementia support café at our home as currently 850,000 people in the UK are living with dementia. 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 attending or becoming a guest speaker please contact Vicki at the home on 01892 618773 or email Vicki.Pickering@hallmarkcarehomes.co.uk.#
