Dementia Awareness Week (14 – 20 May) – Free Theatre Tickets

 

As part of Dementia Awareness Week, you are invited to a free showing of What Do You See? a play that looks at later stage dementia, exploring issues around care homes and end of life palliative care.

 

            “You would not want to be a resident at Marshall Joan’s Care Home with its demotivated staff, lack of stimulation and a

              culture that lacks care. Fortunately they’ve just failed their CQC inspection leading to a change in ownership, are things

              about to change? Let’s hope so!”

 

This “powerful” “realistic” and “incredibly funny” play looks at the importance of life histories within person centred care, challenges taboos around death and shows the possibility of choice and the empowerment advance care planning brings. It takes good leadership to impact change, and as important as it is to create a positive environment and culture of care for residents, it is equally important to create an environment that staff want to work in.

  

Shows will take place on Wednesday 17 May at 10.30pm – 12.30pm or 1.30 – 3.30pm @
