How does knowing help?
We understand that receiving a dementia diagnosis can be upsetting and overwhelming, but with the right knowledge and understanding, people living with dementia and and their families can live well.
These sessions are designed to help you adjust, navigate services, and plan positively for the future. We talk openly in a supportive, safe group and learn about living well.
What do the sessions offer?
These sessions will help you to:
- Understand what dementia is and how it feels to be living with it
- Enable independence for as long as possible
- Empower you to have open, supportive conversations
- Enable people with dementia to play an active role in planning for their future
These sessions are designed and produced alongside people living with dementia. This helps us make sure they are as relevant and helpful as possible, as well as giving you the opportunity to hear from people that have been in a similar situation.
We found the session both interesting and informative and from a caring point of view, for my daughter and I to listen to other people living with dementia describing how they approach and deal so positively with dementia was certainly worthwhile learning for us.
Glenn, our Dementia Ambassador who has helped to design our post-diagnostic sessions, shares his experiences of receiving a dementia diagnosis and advice for people who have recently received a diagnosis.
These sessions are free to anyone with a dementia diagnosis and their loved ones living in Oxfordshire. Any upcoming sessions, along with information on their location and timings will be posted on our events page. Click the button below to be taken to the events page.
