The local award winning provider of personal care in the home, Bluebird Care Hammersmith and Fulham, is running the event along with the Hammersmith Community Gardens Association – all as part of national Dementia Awareness Week in conjunction with the Alzheimer’s Society.
The free information session will be held at the Ravenscourt Park Glasshouses, Ravenscourt Park next to the Tea House on Monday 21st May at 1pm. The session will last for one hour.
Managing Director of Bluebird Hammersmith and Fulham, Soheila Amin, said:
“One in four people will be affected by dementia in their lifetimes, which is why it’s important to work with individuals and their families to try and make life much easier for those who have it.
A recent report made recommendations to the government about the need to continue to raise awareness of dementia, and the work that can be done to make our communities more dementia friendly.
With the specialist services we provide at Bluebird Care we are determined to do just that with this free public event as part of national Dementia Awareness Week.”
Set up by the Alzheimer’s Society, Dementia Awareness Sessions have been running across the country for a number of years and focus on improving the quality of life for people living with dementia. By holding information workshops in towns, villages and cities across the UK, the society’s ambition is to work with people affected by dementia and key partners to develop dementia-friendly communities.
By doing so people will be more aware of and understand more about dementia, and people living with dementia will feel included in their community.
Soheila added: “The Bluebird Care team want to meet as many people as possible and make them aware of dementia, its affects and how we as a community can support those who live with it.”
Any member of the public who would like to find out more about dementia is invited to come along to the event on Monday 21st May, 1pm, at the Ravencourt Park Glasshouse (Ravenscourt Park, W6 0UL).
