Dementia Awareness Week

Dementia Awareness Week

To show our support for Dementia Awareness week we have focused on meaningful and worthwhile activities which our residents would enjoy. We started the week off with one of our wonderful entertainers Johnny Tarrinno, who visits all of our other homes in the group. The residents really enjoyed a wonderful afternoon of nostalgic music, sing a long songs and dancing, should they so wish.

To raise self esteem and bring a little re assurance and comfort should it be required, we also had our person centred, one to one chats and group chats during the week, talking about how Dementia can change lives and how it affects different people in different ways. We were happy to hear what our resident’s thoughts were and how they were feeling about Dementia and the way it can turn things around. It proved to be very meaningful and a wonderful chat about past jobs, life histories and hobbies from all walks of life and it was lead by one of our new ladies who had recently joined us here at Oriel.
