Ivy Court to host important event for Dementia Action Week
To help support those in Doncaster who are living with or know someone living with dementia, Ivy Court Care Home in Balby are hosting their own Dementia Action Week event. The event, which will take place on the 18th of May, will feature a number of guest speakers who have personal or professional experience with dementia. The event will aim to support people to:
- Understand and recognise potential symptoms of dementia
- Know where to go locally for guidance and support
- Feel empowered to take the next step
The event is free to attend and members within the local area are all welcome. The event will start at 2pm, where attendees will be greeted with refreshments. Once attendees have arrived and are settled, the first presentation: How to get a diagnosis in Doncaster, will be given by Wayne Goddard, Doncaster Dementia Collaborative Chair. Doncaster Admiral Service will then give a short presentation on the Signs and Symptoms and information on how the Admiral Service supports people living with dementia and their families. A speaker living with young onset dementia will also share her story at the event and Claire Hoyles, Customer Relations Manager at Runwood Homes will talk through a number of valuable dementia support services and resources. The event will conclude with a Q&A.
