Event to provide information for older people

Cardiff City Hall

‘Collaborate for Change’ is the theme of a stakeholder event to be held at City Hall, Cardiff, on Thursday 2nd February 2012, in recognition of the Older Person’s Mental Health Day.

It is hoped that the event, which will run from 10am until 4pm, will attract carers, service users, professionals and other interested parties.

There will be an opportunity to discuss developments within mental health services for older people within Cardiff and the Vale of Glamorgan, and to hear the stories of carers looking after relatives with late life memory problems and confusion. Professor Tony Bayer of the Memory Team will give an overview of diagnosis and the treatment of dementia.

Attendees at the event are welcome to participate in workshops, gather information from statutory and voluntary sector service providers, and enjoy taster sessions of a number of therapies, such as aromatherapy and Indian Head Massage.

If you would like to attend the event, please contact Matt or Caroline at the Nexus Project on (029) 2022 2000 or email nexus@cvmhdp.org.uk.
