As I write this, it feels like spring is just ahead for us so it just makes sense to give you a sense of what’s ahead for Dementia Compass too. Should I pause here so you can find your diary?
Next week, our Still Caring Lunch Club will meet and welcome Julie Philps. Julie is a research nurse in our local DeNDRoN research network; she’ll be updating us on the local research happenings, hers as well as others. If you’re interested, there’s still time to book. Last orders on Monday at 12noon with the lunch on Wednesday, 12:30 for 1pm.
Also on Wednesday, the d’music’a choir members will rehearse once more before their spring concert on Friday night at 8pm. If you’re a fan of the musical Oliver! this is one not to miss. The doors open at 7:30 and our free concert will start at 8pm. It’s cafe style this time, so plan to stay for refreshments afterwards. (We won’t host another choir at this concert, so you’ll be home sooner than usual.)
On the following Tuesday (17 March), we will host the Caring 2. evening meeting at the Future Business Centre and welcome Anne Streather of CamSight as our speaker. Anne is bringing along equipment to share that CamSight offers to support individuals with a vision impairment and she’ll talk to us about how CamSight works, vision issues present for older adults and some emerging findings about dementia and vision in Cambridgeshire. If you support an individual(s) with a dementia, you are welcome to attend. We encourage pre-booking to keep our costs down. The first Caring 2. event you attend if free.
Finally, we’re co-hosting In Mind and Body conference on Friday, 17 April which we’ll be publicising more about on the website over the next few days. I’ll leave you with that and wish you a fabulous weekend!
