The Haven Forth marks Dementia Awareness Week
We recently marked UK Dementia Awareness Week in our Forth centre by holding a week of activities for families affected by Dementia in the local Clydesdale community.
In partnership with Life Changes Trust and South Lanarkshire Health and Social Care Partnership Integrated Care Fund, The Haven in Forth offers tailored emotional support to those living with or affected by Dementia and to their carers.
During Dementia Awareness Week we held activities such as a Stress and De Stress
Session for Dementia Carers facilitated by CPN Alison Smillie and a Relaxation Group for Dementia Carers and Clients. The local community were also encouraged to come along to the centre to find out more information on the support and services available at The Haven for people affected by Dementia.
The activities during Dementia Awareness Week were a fantastic opportunity for us to let families in the local community know that we can support them.
