First Friday is all about brain food. On the first Friday of every month we ask a speaker to join us for our team meeting. We drink beer, we eat crisps and we invite in new ideas, new people and new possibilities.
In February we're delighted to be joined by Rachel Mortimer, an artist who works with dementia patients to revive life skills and improve their mental condition. Find out more here: http://www.engageandcreate.co.uk/
Dementia - A New Mind Set
A new case of dementia is diagnosed somewhere in the world every four seconds. Currently there is no prevention or cure. So we have to live with it. But is it possible to live well with dementia?
Rachel believes we can. “There is a lot of work to do, and actually it doesn't involve people with dementia.”
At #NMFirstFriday Rachel will talk about a technique she has developed and how the basis of it could impact all of our lives, the work she does in care homes (some of which are neither caring or homely) and some ideas of how creative thinking can bring colour into the rather grey world of dementia care.
Please join us at NMHQ for beers and brain food.
