A care home in Cringleford is inviting the local community to a free event offering support and advice to family carers.
On Wednesday November 14, from 1.30pm–4pm, the team at Care UK’s Cavell Court on Dragonfly Lane is welcoming people to its first ‘Communication for Carers’ event, designed to help local family carers to get to know each other and share ideas and experiences.
Gina Brown from Age UK Norwich will be hosting the interactive workshop and will discuss the different types of dementia, behaviour changes in loved ones, and tools for effective communication.
Carers are also encouraged to bring their loved ones along to the event, who will be able to take part in a range of activities delivered specially by Cavell Court’s lifestyle team.
After the event there will be a Q&A session with Gina and the opportunity to meet the friendly team at Cavell Court, as well as take a closer look at the care home.
Cavell Court home manager, Jennie Rodger, said: “Here at Cavell Court, we strongly believe that being informed and sharing experiences can make a real difference to those caring for a loved one, and it can often be a great comfort to hear that others understand your situation.
“Our free advice events always prove to be incredibly popular with local people so I’m hopeful that our first Communication for Carers workshop will also be a success. We look forward to welcoming Gina to Cavell Court for what promises to be an interesting and inspiring afternoon of information and guidance.”
