Dementia Talk at Meresworth, Rickmansworth

The talk will explain in everyday language what dementia is (and what it is not). It will explore some of the reasons dementia affects people in the way it does and look at what can be done to help offset the impact of the illness. We will also discuss how the home approaches working with people living with dementia and their families.

The talk will be held on the 18th June and is due to start at 10:30am.
