Description

The Retirement Café gives you an opportunity to learn more about issues and challenges that may affect your retirement, over coffee and cake.

2018 starts with the challenging topic of Dementia - Prevention and Care. You are likely to know someone suffering from this common syndrome associated with an ongoing decline of brain functioning.

According to the Alzheimer's Society there are around 850,000 people in the UK with dementia - a condition that affects 1 in 6 people over 80. The number of people with dementia is estimated to reach 1 million by 2025.

The Retirement Cafe looks forward to welcoming experts in the field of dementia:

Dr Ben Hicks, psychologist and researcher with Bournemouth University Dementia Institute (BUDI), has over ten years research experience within the field of health and well-being. His projects include developing a model of dementia care for GuildCare care homes and a study to explore the potential benefits of computer game technology for older men with dementia.

Kerry Mason is Christchurch Business Manager of MyLife Living Assistance. Kerry has been involved in the care sector within Bournemouth and Poole for over 14 years and is also a Dementia Friends Champion.

This two-hour event will cover the following important areas:

- Can dementia be prevented?

- How to slow down the on-set of dementia

- Caring for someone with dementia

There will be an opportunity to ask your questions directly to the panel and to talk to them individually afterwards. You are welcome to attend the seminar with family members.

Information shared is for guidance only. You will definitely not be sold to at the Retirement Café. In fact, you cannot buy anything - not even the coffee! The coffee and cake are on us and so is the chat.

Space at this event is limited, so reserve your free ticket early to avoid disappointment as previous events have sold out.
