A care home is holding an information event to help people understand what it is like to live with dementia.

On Wednesday, March 15 from 2pm to 4pm, the Care UK team will open the doors to Hartimsere Place care home in Castleton Way, Eye, near Diss, for its Understanding Dementia event.

Dementia specialist Dr Nori Graham will be on hand to give people support and practical advice on what dementia is and how memories are lost, as well as useful tips on how to overcome communication barriers.

The aim is to help people discover positive approaches to caring for loved ones living with dementia.

After the event, there will be a question and answer session.

Home manager Marie Reeve said: 'Previous events have proven to be incredibly popular, so we are looking forward to welcoming local people to Hartismere Place for what promises to be another interesting and inspiring afternoon of information and guidance.'
