YOUR HEALTH MATTERS… Living Well for a Healthier Memory & Longer Life is a FREE Community Engagement Event taking place during National Dementia Awareness Week
on Thursday 19th May and will run from 10am – 2pm.
The Vale of Evesham Primary Care Network (PCN) spearheaded by Abbey Medical Practice have been successful in bringing together over 40 Organisations who between them will showcase the wealth of support and services available to those who may face the challenges of living with long-term health conditions, including memory loss and dementia.
GP Partner at the Practice, Dr Julia Lloyd, with a 27 year history of serving Evesham has both a personal and professional interest in care of the elderly, particularly those suffering with dementia, and along with other colleagues will be putting her best foot forward on 16th July striding out on a 26 mile walk to raise funds for the Alzheimer’s Society.
Experts will be on hand on 19th May to give help and information on Health, Wellbeing, Diet and Nutrition as well as Leisure Pursuits and Social Care, all very necessary to enable you to live the best life you can.
A smaller, similar Event was held in 2019 which was very successful and it was planned to organise a larger more informative Event but this was unable to go ahead caused by the restrictions put in place due to the Pandemic. Carolyn Pym, Memory Loss Advisor at Abbey Medical Practice said:
“We have all been through unprecedented times over the last two years, and as we strive to return to normality, I feel it is more important than ever to help our patients understand the help and support available and how they may access it.’
In addition to the wealth of information available from those participating in this ‘Health Showcase’ a full programme is planned and will include Guest Speakers, a variety of Demonstrations including Equipment, Seated Exercises, Food Sampling and Music to ensure an enjoyable experience for all, and with FREE ONSITE PARKING it is definitely an Event not to be missed.
