South Staffordshire Memory Service: tea and coffee drop-in event page thumbnail

Colleagues from the South Staffordshire Memory Service provided by Midlands Partnership NHS Foundation Trust (MPFT) are holding a drop-in event on Tuesday 21 August 2018 from 10.00 to 12.00.

The event is being hosted at Darwin Court, Wissage Rd, Lichfield WS13 6SP and the memory service team will be joined by representatives from SSAFA and The Royal British Legion who will be able to provide information on how their organisations can support anyone who has been a member of the armed forces.

The South Staffordshire Memory Service offers guidance and support to patients and their families who have experienced memory loss and diagnosis.

Community Psychiatric Nurse (CPN) Adam Terry says; We wanted to provide an opportunity for local people to find out more about what help and support is available to anyone concerned about memory loss in themselves or a loved one. We can offer a range of support and treatment and signpost people to what else is on offer. We know that SSAFA and the British Legion also provide an excellent range of support, not just with mental health but also around loneliness and isolation for example”.

SSAFA believe it is important to reach out to those in the community who are eligible for their services. They are able to provide a wide range of support and look forward to supporting people in their own homes and communities.

Angie Upton, Memory Service and Dementia lead for MPFT added “One of MPFT’s core values is that we can deliver better health, better care in partnership and this is an excellent example of organisations coming together to raise awareness of what help is out there”

All are welcome to come along to the drop-in and tea and coffee will be available.
