Last year on the 8th May local charity Dementia Support opened its fantastic new dementia facility in Tangmere, near Chichester.
Sage House provides complete dementia services under one roof – the first of its kind in the UK. This purpose-built facility boasts state of the art facilities and dementia friendly features which ensures a non-clinical and modern environment for those using Sage House. Many have commented on the friendly atmosphere and welcoming staff.
Now a year on, this pioneering and unique place is celebrating its first birthday; to tie in with this momentous occasion the charity will be announcing some exciting news in May about its future plans to support the local community.
The birthday celebrations will be centred around the people who use Sage House. The 8th May will be a particularly special day with a Birthday Bake Off and vintage entertainment to celebrate with the Sage House family. During this week Dementia Support will unveil its exciting new plans.
The birthday week will kick off several weeks of celebrations and raising awareness about dementia. The charity will be holding its own Wayfinding Week 13th – 17th May; Wayfinders are crucial members of the team at Sage House who provide support, information and advice for families and people living with dementia.
Dementia Action Week, 20th – 24th May is a national awareness week, and everyone throughout the country will be asked to make a pledge of support in the fight against dementia. Dementia Support will be holding its own events at Sage House. Join the charity for Dementia Friends Sessions each day and a Quiz Night on Friday 24th May.
Following that, in June the charity will be celebrating Volunteer Week 3rd – 7th June and Carers Week 10th – 14th June.
The charity supports people living with dementia, and their families and carers in the local community. Dementia Support has been very proud to offer information and advice, day care services, a community café, personal care, hairdressing and therapies, and social activities for hundreds of people during the last year.
