Dementia in Dorset – what does this mean for you?
Tuesday 26th November (10:00am-1:00pm), – The Atrium and The Retreat, Talbot Campus
Equality and Diversity Month Bournemouth University
Bournemouth University Dementia Institute (BUDI) are hosting a community engagement day as part of the Bournemouth University Equality and Diversity month 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 including free massages, cup cake decorating and games.
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, 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.
