Our evening had several aims. Firstly, we wanted to say a little thank you to our customers and provide an opportunity for them to meet and socialize with each other.
Secondly, our customers had the chance to meet some of the Caremark Thanet staff whom they would not under normal circumstances have a chance to meet.
Thirdly, and very importantly, we provided an opportunity for customers, their families and friends to get expert advice from specialist dementia nurses, Karen Scrivener and Lorna Shadbolt, who were joined on the night by Victoria Adley who is the Fund Raising and Development Officer for East Kent Hospitals. We'd like to say a very big thank you to Victoria, Lorna and Karen for giving so generously of their time.
Victoria, Karen and Lorna are pictured below with one of our customers.
The feedback from those who attended was extremely positive. The specialist dementia advice was particularly well received. Such was the success of the evening that we intend to do other events throughout the year.
