Saturday 9th November (1:30pm-4:30pm) Littledown Centre Bournemouth, Studio 1
Dementia in Dorset – what does this mean for you?
Free event for all the family
Bournemouth University Dementia Institute (BUDI) are hosting a community engagement day as part of the ESRC Festival of Social Science to showcase a range of their innovative projects which will bring dementia awareness to life through technology, maritime archaeology, exercise and tai chi, an art exhibition and many more fun hands-on-activities. There will be a free bouncy castle, face painting, balloons and treats, for children of all ages!
Visitors will have the chance to understand what it’s like to live with dementia through a talk by someone living with dementia and postcard stories, getting the chance to use technology which has the aim of improving the quality of life of those living with dementia, planting seeds to learn about dementia friendly environments, learning how to make healthy food more appetising to improve the mind and body, and experiencing how massage can reduce anxiety and enhance relaxation for both people living with dementia and their carers.
The BUDI team will be on-hand for a chat or to answer questions, and information from local organisations people living with dementia and carers will be available.
There is no need to register for this event, so just come along!
