Potters Bar residential home organises dementia awareness event

May 17, 2017 by  

A care home in Potters Bar is organising an event designed to raise awareness of the link between dementia and neglected hearing loss.

Bloom Hearing Specialists have joined forces with Cooperscroft Care Home to do its bit for Dementia Awareness Week, with the event not limited to residents, including non-residents and families. With the link between dementia and hearing loss at the core of the event, the aim is to ensure that more people treat hearing loss earlier in life.

Attendees will have the opportunity to speak with professionals and learn more about what options are available to them to minimise the escalation of hearing loss, and improve independence and quality of life. Complimentary hearing screening exams will be available, in addition to coffee, tea, and cake, at no cost to all.

TLC Care marketing director Sue Nicholson said:

“All our homes offer tailored care for residents that are experiencing memory loss because of Alzheimer’s or other forms of dementia. We know from experience that hearing loss is an important contributing factor to dementia and we want to work with Bloom Hearing Specialists to help more people understand this link and get help sooner.”

Nicholson has plenty of opportunity to let people know about the event, taking place on 18th May, with local print shops providing postcard printing and other promotional products.
