Join us at local dementia networking event!

dementia networking posterBlack Country Partnership NHS Foundation Trust’s Community older adults Occupational Therapy Team are encouraging the public to talk about dementia at a local networking event on Saturday 20th May.

The event has been set up in conjunction with Walsall’s Pathways for Life to share experiences and services currently being provided for people living with working age dementia across the Black Country.

Charlotte Stocker, Occupational Therapist said: “The event is a great opportunity for the team to promote the role of occupational therapy in dementia services and highlight the good work we are doing in our existing Young Onset Dementia Awareness Course and Young Onset Dementia Activity and Support group in Sandwell”

“As a team we understand that it can be difficult to talk about dementia, you may feel worried or confused about the condition. Therefore we are actively encouraging members of the public to drop into the event and ask any questions they may have about the condition and to share their experiences with the team on Saturday as we unite against dementia’’

The 15th – 19th May marks Dementia Awareness Week which is supported by the Alzheimer's Society. The Alzheimer's Society is a UK charity which provides support and research for those affected by dementia.
