Interview with Gillian Hesketh at NEC Care Exhibition
We spent a very busy three days at Birmingham’s NEC, displaying our nostalgic materials, meaningful wall art and daily living resources for residential and dementia care homes, carers, activity coordinators and care service providers.
When you’re at these events, you never quite know what’s going to happen next – so, totally unprepared, I found myself being interviewed by Rob Underwood, explaining creative ways in which we can help care services and teams enrich social care for well-being.
Thanks Rob for putting me at slightly more ease …
This is what we do at Happy Days to help enrich social care for elderly and people living with dementia:
Prompting the long term memory for elderly and people living with dementia can often help to bring about stories to share and enjoy, encourage interaction and activity and help to maintain an interest in everyday living.
