Getting Chelmsford talking – Local care home joins The Big Dementia Conversation

28th February @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm


A care home in Chelmsford is calling on local people to take part in a national conversation to learn more about dementia.


On Wednesday 28th February, from 2pm-4pm, Care UK’s Manor Lodge on Manor Road, is inviting members of the community for a special event as part of The Big Dementia Conversation – a nationwide initiative designed to encourage people to talk about dementia, including some of the most difficult topics associated with the condition.


According to a recent survey, commissioned by Care UK, eight in ten adults believe dementia is still misunderstood, with 69 percent of the nation believing it’s a subject which is not talked about enough in society. Many people also admit finding the condition uncomfortable to discuss – something Care UK is hoping to change by launching The Big Dementia Conversation.


The monthly Forget Me Not Café at Manor Lodge will provide attendees with an opportunity to meet new people in similar situations, share experiences with one another and gain advice and support from the home’s expert team.


In addition to the event, the Chelmsford community can also visit a newly launched online advice hub. The hub takes a closer look at some of the less-talked-about symptoms of dementia, with expert advice from Care UK’s dementia specialists, who have more than 40 years of experience providing care for people living with the condition.


Maggie Ziemianska, Acting Home Manager at Manor Lodge, said: “Here at Manor Lodge, we strive to create a sense of belonging within the home and provide a positive impact on the local community by building support systems for our neighbours.


“We’re thrilled to invite the local community to our Forget Me Not Café sessions and join in The Big Dementia Conversation. We believe that no carer should feel that they are alone, so we’re looking forward to welcoming new and old faces for a chat over a cup of tea and slice of cake.”
