Limited Spaces on Dementia Workshop at Cavell Court Wed 14th November, 1.30-4pm.
Cavell Court is part of Care UK Homes who have been providing award-winning care for thirty years and have more than 100 care homes in the UK. These enable over 7,000 people to stay active and fulfilled in safe and comfortable surroundings. One of their newest homes, Cavell Court is just three years old and can be found in the heart of Cringleford. The home offers both nursing and residential care as well as short term respite and end of life care. Cavell Court provides specialist care for older people living with dementia and hosting this workshop is a way of supporting carers in this situation.
‘Communication for Carers’ will take place on Wed 14th November from 1.30-4pm at Cavell Court. The workshop will be delivered by Gina Brown from Age UK Norwich who will be explaining the different types of dementia, changes in behaviour and how carers can engage in effective communication.
According to the Dementia Statistics Hub there are currently 850,000 people in the UK with dementia and this number is set to increase. Caring for someone with dementia can be very rewarding but it can also present many challenges not least in terms of communication. You may see big changes in the person you care for and it could be that you need to find new ways to talk to and listen to them. This can be quite daunting so if you are in this situation, or suspect you may be in the future why not come along to the workshop? The aim is to increase carer’s knowledge and confidence when communicating with their loved ones and it will also be a chance to meet other people in a similar situation.
Carers can bring the person they care for along to the event where Cavell Court’s Lifestyle Team will carry out activities with them in another area of the care home for the duration of the workshop.
The full address is Cavell Court Care Home, 140 Dragonfly Lane, Cringleford, Norwich NR4 7LH.
There are only 20 spaces available so booking is essential. Please call the home directly on 01603 251360 to book a place or find out more information. Alternatively email firstname.lastname@example.org
