Sonning Common Health Centre’s Dr Sue Ronay, PPG members Rika Adams and Sue Litchfield are planning an open day for anyone who wants to know more about Dementia and Alzheimer’s at Sonning Common Village Hall on Friday 13th July from 10 am till 4 pm. It is free for everyone – there is no need to be registered with SCHC.

We have arranged for over 20 organisations to attend. They will provide information and advice covering a variety of subjects from what research is currently taking place, to what care options are available for those who suffer with dementia and what local support is available for patients and their carers.

Short talks, with question time, given by knowledgeable speakers will cover topics like: 

  • Safety implications and how you can become a Dementia Friend. 
  • Thames Valley Police talking about the Herbert Protocol.
  • Dementia Oxfordshire on their role on guiding both sufferers and carers to meet their needs.

Refreshments will be available throughout the day.  You could join in with some activities to keep the brain active and the Notts choir group from Nottakwire will provide entertainment at lunchtime. 

A programme listing the participants and also the speakers with times will be available from mid June. You will be able to find it at Sonning Common Health Centre (both at reception and on its website), the Pharmacy, several shops and Sonning Common Library will have copies.  

Please make a note in your diary to come along on 13 July 2018.

If you are unable to come to this event there will be information and leaflets about Dementia available at the SC Health Centre Topic Table (entrance lobby) towards the end of June and July.
