The next meeting of the young onset dementia support group at St George's Hospital will take place on Wednesday, 25th January 2017 in Boardrooms H2.7 and H2.8 on the 2nd floor of the Hunter Wing. People are encouraged to arrive any time after 7pm for refreshments and conversation and we will convene the meeting formally at 7.30pm and conclude at 9.30pm, although there will be no rush to leave, people are welcome to stay for a further half-hour for informal discussion.
We have a number of guest contributors for this meeting:
- Sarah Plummer from 'Young Dementia UK' will talk about the Young Dementia Network that has recently been formed https://www.youngdementiauk.org/young-dementia-network
- Sara Wilcox from 'Pathways through Dementia' will facilitate a Q & A session on the subject of 'paying for care', which is a subject that is relevant to a number of people in the group at the moment.
- Bibliotherapy practitioner, Charlotte Overton-Hart, will lead a story and poetry session suitable for people living with dementia and family carers.
The St George's Hospital young onset dementia group is open to anyone diagnosed with dementia at a young age (under 65) and their families. Please do extend an invitation to the meeting to people living with dementia and carers you are in touch with who might be interested.
