Almoner Briefings on Dementia – 29th October 2019 – Twickenham
29/10/2019 @ 6:45 pm - 9:00 pmFree
There can hardly be a Masonic unit where one of its members isn’t either aware of, caring for, or perhaps suffering from a memory-related illness. In that context, we are pleased to announce that Anne Child, Pharmacy and Dementia Specialist Lead at the Royal Masonic Benevolent Institution (RMBI) has kindly agreed to visit Middlesex to speak to us about dementia, and to give some practical advice on communication, environment, signposting etc., to help carers supporting those with memory-related illness.
Anne has a key role in the RMBI supporting their objective to provide high-quality specialist dementia care in its 17 care homes across England and Wales. Anne is an authority on the subject. In 2014, she received an MBE for services to dementia, and in 2015 she was appointed programme guardian for care home medication with the College of Pharmacy Practice, and also joined the national steering group for Parkinson’s UK. Anne holds a Master’s degree and specialises in dementia and medication management, as well as clinical governance and risk management.
Anne’s presentations will be held as follows:
- Tuesday 29th October at Twickenham District Masonic Centre 6.45PM for a 7.30PM start
Who should attend? Lodge and Chapter Almoners; also any Lodge or Chapter member known to you who may be caring for, or concerned about a close relative with a memory-related illness.
NOTE: It is anticipated that there may be considerable interest in the above presentations, so early advance booking is essential. If demand exceeds supply, attendance may have to be on a “first-come, first-served” basis.
