Astle Paterson support those affected by dementia

Sarah Nash, Solicitor and Head of Astle Paterson’s Wills and Probate Department discusses Astle Paterson’s pledge to assist those affected by dementia in the local community.

Sarah said “As part of our drive to assist people in Burton upon Trent and the surrounding area, Astle Paterson are working alongside East Staffordshire Borough Council to offer assistance to those who have been diagnosed with dementia as well as their carers – and as part of the same, we will seek to promote the Council’s schemes for those affected by dementia.

There are currently two projects which will take place in the near future which those suffering from dementia or their carers may wish to attend.

The first project is a pilot scheme called Live Well which aims to improve connectivity, reduce feelings of isolation and be fun and engaging through singing, dance movement therapy and crafts sessions aimed at those Living Well with dementia and their carers.

The singing, dance movement therapy and crafts sessions will be held at The Brewhouse Arts Centre in Duke Street, Burton upon Trent between 1:30pm—2:30pm on Fridays 13th, 20th and 27th January 2017 and are free to attend – you can either book your free place on 01283 508100 or simply just turn up on the day.”

Sarah continued “The second initiative is a workshop “Becoming a Dementia Friend” which is due to take place in May 2017 – an information session run by the Council where you can learn a little bit more about what it’s like to live with dementia and how you could become a Dementia Friend, simply by, for example, passing on the knowledge you have learned to your friends or by visiting someone you know living with dementia.

Should you be interested in attending the workshop please kindly contact Patricia Newman, Health Development Officer at East Staffordshire Borough Council on 01283 508191.”
