Wednesday 17th November 3:00pm â€“ 4:00pm
Brixton Town Hall, Brixton Hill, SW2 1RW
People with dementia and their carers tell us that one of the most important things to them is to have the opportunity to speak with someone else who really understands.
In 2009, the Alzheimerâ€™s Society in partnership with Modernisation Initiative End of Life Care, South London and the Maudsley, London Borough of Lambeth and London Borough of Southwark began to develop a peer support network. This network links people either living with or caring for a person with dementia to others, sharing similar experiences.
The project is broken into three key areas:
Group meetings (Stockwell, Brixton, Peckham and Bermondsey)
An online forum
One to one support delivered by former carers
So far we have supported over 30 carers and people with dementia to access our services, but we know there are thousands out there that can really benefit from this network.
Find out more about our creative peer support services and how you can help the people that you work with to access these. Youâ€™ll also have the chance to put forward your thoughts on how you can help us to build this network further.
Registration from 2.30pm – Afternoon tea and cake will be available!
This event is open to all professionals working with people with dementia and carers of people with dementia living in Southwark or Lambeth.
Places are limited, so please book your space by Thursday 11th November. To book your space email firstname.lastname@example.org or call the Southwark office of the Alzheimerâ€™sÂ Â SocietyÂ on 020 7089 9173
