About this Event
Dementia is a life-limiting condition and will affect most of us at some point in having to deal with its symptoms or to care for someone else.
Understanding how to recognize the signs and learning a few techniques to help keep the brain active and our memories alive could make the difference in the quality of life for those around us.
Work overload, trauma and mental health issues can also affect our memory so a greater insight into this at a younger age is very useful.
Anna D’Agostino, Croydon BME Forum (http://www.cbmeforum.org) will help us to recognize the signs and where to get advice and ongoing to support for those living with dementia, carers and family members.
We will look at some of the apps and tools online that can help us improve our memory.
Amy Viola, The Little Escape, (http://thelittleescape.co.uk) will also guide us on how to access and use meditations on our phone or online to help us manage our wellbeing and overall mental state, as she says “The quality of your mindset dictates the quality of your life”
Tea and Tech is a series of workshops & events to make the digital world a whole lot simpler.
We cover a range of topics including personal security, managing your health online and making payments.
We have activities to follow and a chance to try new things such as a tablet or assistive technology.
Time is always set aside for ‘community fixing’ – helping you with updates, installing apps, accessing old accounts and other niggling issues.
We are always looking for volunteers so please get in touch if you can spare a few hours to help local resident. firstname.lastname@example.org.
