Dementia Awareness Day

Event Date: 17 May 2017
Share:

Venue:  Llys Glan Yr Afon, at Newtown  

Time:  10.00 am – 4.00 pm

During Dementia Awareness Week Powys Teaching Health Board are hosting a day for people living with dementia and their families/carers. The aim is to raise awareness of locally-available services to facilitate people living well for longer, within their own home environment, as well as to provide information about the support that is available to carers. Many people are reluctant to seek advice or visit their GP surgery for fear of what may happen if they are given a diagnosis. If we raise awareness it may encourage people experiencing memory problems, or their family to attend their GP surgery. In Health we would like to emphasise that the focus is on “managing the dementia rather than dying with dementia”.

PTHB would like to invite you to be a part of this initiative and provide information about the services your organisation offers to support people to live well in their own homes. Tables are provided, however, if you prefer to use your own stands or display boards please bring them along with you.

The day is free to organisations to attend and it has the potential to be a great way of promoting your services to the public.

Refreshments will be provided.

Please confirm whether your organisation will be represented no later Friday 31st March.
