CARING LOCALS came together at a dementia and Alzheimer’s workshop in Springhead to tackle the often difficult topic.
The community centre teamed up with Home Instead Senior Care, Uppermill to host the workshop.
Participants learned about the many different types of dementia and their consequences as well as coping strategies for carers and relatives dealing with people living with the illness.
Barbara Beeley, chair of Springhead and Lees Community association, said: “There were light-hearted moments in the session but I think everyone who attended appreciated the serious message being put across.”
