Memory Day 2017

Memory Day 2017

Olympus Care Services proudly attended the much anticipated Memory Day 2017 held at the Grosvenor Centre in Northampton’s town centre on the 21st September 2017.

Olympus shared a stand with Admiral Nurses who were supported by Northamptonshire Adult Social Service’s HICT Team Nurses. Among the services exhibiting were Northants Fire Services, Toller’s Solicitors, St Andrews, Northamptonshire Carers, Alzheimer’s Society and many more informative stalls.

Olympus promoted a number of their services for Dementia which included our Specialist Dementia Service and Assistive Technology for Dementia supporting the AT Home Longer campaign. Our team were busy throughout the day providing information on all the products which are available to assist someone with dementia including aids for daily living, equipment to provide peace of mind to a carer or family member and technology which can assist an assessment of dementia and provide invaluable information to enable a personalised solution to remain AT Home for Longer.  This was a wonderful opportunity for our team to let anyone who cares for, or anyone who has been, diagnosed with dementia know how they could access the services available which include telephoning the sales team or visiting the online shop www.athomelonger.co.uk

The day was a wonderful success for the public to obtain information and ask questions directly to the relevant services. It was also a fantastic opportunity for all Northamptonshire dementia services to network with each other and spend some time learning about what we all do and how we can interact together in the future to ensure that signposting and working collaboratively is a priority for us all.

The Memory Day was organised by the Dementia Friendly Community of Practice (CoP), a group of local organisations across research, education, and practice who aim to influence the theory and practice of dementia care across Northamptonshire. The University of Northampton’s Institute of Health and Wellbeing is a founder member of the CoP.  Professor Jacqueline Parkes, chair, explained: “It has been a great opportunity to work together with key local organisations to plan for this event; in particular, working with our self-supported former carers group, Qualified by Experience, who have been extremely informative and helpful in shaping the format for the day.”

A massive thank you to Jacqueline Parkes for organising Memory Day for the second year running and we look forward to supporting you again in 2018!
