Dementia Awareness Week at Springhill Care Home

on

This week is Dementia Awareness Week, and we have lots going on around the home including a 1940s garden party picnic, Mad Hatter themed tea party, a music concert, the Springhill Great British Bake Off as well as a raffle and sponsored leg wax. We’re supporting the Alzheimer’s Society’s ‘do something new’ campaign and will continue raising awareness on dementia while having a thoroughly good time.

At Springhill Care Home, we have a person-centred approach to care, with specialist services and facilities that are designed to support those whose lives are affected by dementia.

Residents can enjoy the benefits of a whole range of activities designed to stimulate positive memories, such as our sensory garden, arts and craft afternoons, musical therapy and holistic treatments.

Our dementia forum is a welcoming place for relatives and friends of residents we care for in our dementia service to come together and share their experiences of living with dementia.

 

*Dementia is caused when the brain is damaged by diseases such as Alzheimer’s or a series of strokes. Symptoms may include memory loss and difficulties with thinking, speech and problem-solving. There are currently 850,000 people with dementia in the UK, a figure which is expected to rise to more than a million by the year 2021.
