Local Sutton organisations come together to create dementia pop up hubs for those living with dementia and their carers, family and friends
Healthwatch Sutton, Age UK Sutton, Citizens Advice Sutton, Sutton Carers Centre, Alzheimers Society, Riverside Community Association Ltd and Admiral Nurses (Specialist Dementia Nurse's) have launched dementia pop up hubs which will seek to help local residents who are living with dementia or would like to find out more about the condition.
The hubs will provide an open and accessible space for local people to come and meet other people. Representatives from several organisations will be available at each pop up to provide information and advice. There will also be presentations at midday at each site on dementia related themes such as power of attorney.
The idea for the project came from a recommendation from the Healthwatch Sutton report 'Exploring the experience of people with dementia and those who care for them in 2017 which found there was not enough support for those living with dementia and a dementia hub in Sutton would address a lot of the issues identified.
The hubs will run at the following locations and will take place between 11:00am and 2:00pm:
|Sutton Carers Centre– Monday 23 July||Benhill house, 12-14 Benhill Avenue, Sutton SM1 4DA |
|Sutton Alzheimer's Society – Wednesday 8 August||Pandora House, 41-45 Lind Road, Sutton SM1 4PP |
|Citizens Advice Sutton (Wallington) – Friday 7 September||68 Parkgate Road, Wallington SM6 0AH |
|Citizens Advice Sutton (Sutton) – Wednesday 26 September||Civic Offices/St. Nicholas Way, Sutton SM1 1EA |
|Riverside Centre – October (TBC)||113 Culvers Ave, Carshalton SM5 2FJ|
