Alzheimer’s Society presents new Dementia Connect service at Braywood Gardens
Braywood Gardens care home in Nottingham, part of the Runwood Homes group, recently showcased the Alzheimer’s Society’s dementia support service.
The team at Braywood Gardens were keen to present this new service to their local community, their residents, and their families, and invited Alzheimer’s Society’s Tom Carter to talk about the scheme.
The aim of Dementia Connect is to highlight how people living with dementia can access support. Those present were invited to share their experiences of dementia over coffee and cake, in an atmosphere of encouragement and support.
The event was organised by Lydia Morris, Braywood Gardens’ customer relations manager. She and Tom are part of Nottingham’s Dementia Action Alliance.
Lydia said: “The presentation was fantastic to inform us all about the wonderful support available from the Alzheimer’s Society. It is great for us at Braywood Gardens to connect with organisations like Alzheimer’s Society to ensure the residents, families, and local community have access to a wider network of people to chat to, to share experiences with, and feel secure knowing there are services and places around them to help and support them.”
The Braywood Gardens team are aiming to make the home a ‘supportive and welcoming hub for their community’, and promise more upcoming events to share support, resources, and guidance relating to various aspects of care.
