A Glasgow care home is hosting a Dementia Support Café for Dementia Awareness Week next week and is inviting members of the local community to join them.
Bupa’s Rodgerpark Care Home, on Rodger Drive, is welcoming locals to come along on Tuesday 16 May from 2.00pm to 4.00pm for coffee, cake and conversations.
The afternoon offers a comfortable space for those who want to meet, chat and share with others whose lives have been affected by dementia.
Dementia care specialists and Bupa’s Admiral Nurses will also be on hand to offer advice and answer any questions.
Sandra Mackay, resident experience manager, said : “We’re offering a relaxed and informal space for those living with dementia, their friends, family and carers to drop in and have a chat over some coffee and cake.
“Giving our residents and visitors this time in which they can share their experiences and stories with each other is invaluable and something which we’ve found to be hugely beneficial for everyone involved.”
