Willow Wood to host dementia information day

Willow Wood Hospice is hosting an Information Day to start an informal conversation and offer guidance around dementia care provision in Tameside and Glossop. 

It’s taking place at the Hospice, based on Willow Wood Close in Ashton-under-Lyne, on Friday 17th May from 11am and 3pm. 

The drop-in hub, in The Hive room, will be a market place information event, which is free to attend and open to the public and professionals. 

Attendees will be able to chat to representatives from Willow Wood’s Dementia Support team, the Integrated Care team, Age Concern, Memory Clinic, local PCNs and Alzheimer’s Society. 

The event coincides with Dementia Action Week, an annual campaign led by Alzheimer’s Society that brings people together from across the country under a unified theme to take action on dementia. 

Nicola Lavery, Dementia Services Lead at Willow Wood Hospice, said: “One in three people born in the UK today will go on to develop dementia in their lifetime. Being diagnosed with dementia, or caring for a person with dementia, can be challenging. 

“We want people from our local community to know that support is available to anyone affected by dementia in a number of ways. 

“If you are looking for valuable information about dementia services in our area, including here at the Hospice, please come along to our Information Day to find out more.” 

On the day, limited Blue Badge parking will be available at the Hospice. Darnton Road has a public pay and display car park if you are not coming on foot or public transport. 

Anyone who has any questions about the event in the meantime can call Willow Wood’s Dementia Support team on 0161 330 1100.
