Harrier House Supports Family & Friends with Dementia Awareness Workshop

Harrier House Care Home in Hucknall, Nottinghamshire is holding a FREE friends and family dementia awareness workshop with their dedicated Dementia Manager, Karen Middleton on Wednesday 24th November 2021.

Dementia has a deep impact not only on those who are diagnosed, but also on the people who are closest to them. Family members find themselves having to take on different responsibilities and often find relationships changes.  Many feelings families and caregivers tell us they experience are guilt, grief and loss, and anger. Harrier House wants relatives and friends to be able to ask the questions and know they are supported throughout their loved one’s diagnosis.

Dementia does not change a person’s need for love and affection, in fact for many that need increases.  We recognise that dementia is a continual bereavement and relationships go through many phases with each phase requiring a different approach and response.

We provide support in a variety of different ways and will work with you to find the way which works best for you
