As part of World Alzheimer’s Month, the Alzheimer’s Society’s Memory Walk returned to Corbrook Park to draw on the importance of supporting the fight against dementia.
Our Cheshire nursing home held the Memory Walk and fundraising day for all residents, their family and friends and was held in the stunning grounds of Corbrook Park, with themed memory stations placed along the route to spark conversation amongst the participants.
The Memory Walk initiative, organised by the Alzheimer’s Society, is a national event held each year which encourages people across the country to ‘walk for a world without dementia’ and raise vital funds for essential research.
Corbrook Park nursing home specialises in dementia care and we understand how crucial this research is and how it could help researchers to understand the causes of dementia, how it can be treated and ultimately discover how it can be cured.
We feel that supporting the Alzheimer’s Society is critical as it could one day give us a world without dementia, but for now we must continue to manage dementia and provide outstanding care to those living with it. At Morris Care we use our own bespoke approach to caring for those with dementia – the Cedar Philosophy, which focuses on an individuals’ personal needs and wellbeing alongside their nursing requirements.
In a handful of cases, this approach has given our General Practitioners the opportunity to reduce the medication of some residents, who as an effect of the Cedar Philosophy are much calmer and happier.
