Bucklesham Grange to host a dementia open day

Bucklesham Grange, our outstanding care home in Ipswich is hosting a dementia information day on Tuesday 28th January from 11:00am – 3:30pm.

Join us for “Grandma Remember Me?” A beautiful theatre show told through a mix of puppetry, drama and storytelling. Written from the perspective of a young child, Lilly, whose Grandma develops Alzheimer’s disease, it explores their changing relationship from Lilly’s initial recognition that there is something wrong with her grandma, through the unfolding challenges and final acceptance and understanding of the disease.

We will also be hosting other presentations after the theatre show that can help loved one’s care for someone on their journey of dementia.
