Highgate Group Practice Hosts Another Successful Dementia Coffee Event

Highgate Group Practice, known for its unwavering commitment as a “Dementia Friendly Practice,” successfully hosted its second event for dementia patients and their caregivers on Friday, May 31st, 2024. This event further solidified our dedication to supporting those affected by dementia within our community.

Organized by our diligent Social Prescriber and the exceptional Admin Team, the event aimed to provide a platform for sharing valuable information and fostering connections among local support groups, patients, and their families. The focus was on highlighting the extensive range of services and activities available to assist those living with dementia.

We are deeply grateful to the representatives from various local dementia services who once again offered their time and expertise; and to a new participant, a representative from Jackson’s Lane. Jackson’s Lane informed our patients about the range of inclusive projects and activities available for people of all ages, such as the shared reading and discussion group and many other social workshops.
