Dementia currently affects approximately 850,000 people in the UK and the number is predicted to rise to one million by 2025. An symptom of the incurable Alzheimer’s Disease, supporting those with dementia has never been so important.
Storytelling can be used as a non-medicinal approach to help with the behavioural and psychological symptoms of dementia.
Abimbola Alao will share her experience of using storytelling to support those with dementia in memory cafes, and you will be able to participate in spontaneous storytelling that has the potential to bring hope to the world of dementia.
