A care home in Woolmer Green is inviting the local community to its free event for families caring for those living with dementia.
On Wednesday 21st February from 2pm-4pm, the Care UK team at Knebworth on London Road will open the doors to the care home for its Understanding Dementia event.
Dementia specialist, Dr Nori Graham, will be on hand to help people understand what it is like to live with dementia. There will also be support and practical advice on what dementia is and how memories are lost, as well as useful tips on how to overcome communication barriers.
After the event there will be a Q&A session and an opportunity to meet the team at Knebworth, as well as take a closer look at the care home.
Home manager, Vera Moreira-Henocq, said: “Here at Knebworth, we strongly believe professional knowledge, insight and shared experiences can make a real difference to the everyday lives of those looking after a loved one living with dementia.
“The aim of the event is to help people discover positive approaches to caring for loved ones and to support them to lead independent and fulfilled lives.
“We are looking forward to welcoming local people to Knebworth for what promises to be an interesting and inspiring afternoon of information and guidance.”
