Dementia workshop in Oxford

Workshop on pathways to support those with dementia and their families takes place on 28th February at Rose Hill in Oxford.

23 February 2017 | News

Our first ‘Leading Together’ workshop for dementia takes place at the Rose Hill Community Centre on Tuesday 28 February 2017, from 9 am to 4 pm.

The workshop aims to shape the pathway for how we can best support people who have dementia and their families.

Integral to this is creating a more positive attitude toward dementia care, ensuring that those affected by the disease have a life worth living.

As a service user stated, “A diagnosis isn’t the end; it’s simply the end of living without a diagnosis. I have decided that I will live until I die, and I really want to live.”

“I want a life worth living and not just a long goodbye!”

The workshop will include thoughts from professionals who support people living with dementia, as well as service users and their families. Highlights include:

  • Poetry slam with Jackie Peedell
  • Service user experiences
  • Question and Answer Panel – an opportunity to ask the speakers and Oxford Health questions
  • Group discussions/networking

This workshop rose from the ‘Leading Together’ scheme, which encourages NHS professionals and the public to jointly lead health-related activities.

It also draws on a wider campaign by the Department of Health called ‘Living well with dementia: A National Dementia Strategy’.
