Caring for someone with Dementia brings its own set of particular challenges.

Join our special day long event, on Friday 17th May at ACS’s office in Burpham near Guildford. We will have the Dementia Bus, experts to chat with, talks to help you.

There are several activities available on the day.

Dementia Bus

Firstly, you can have a session on the Dementia Experience Bus (provided by ‘Training for Care’.

Come and walk in the shoes of someone with dementia, and experience for a few minutes what dementia can feel like. It can really open up your understanding.

The Bus will be at our building between 9.30am and 4pm. (You must book a slot, see below.)

Talk to experts

You can meet and chat with a range of experts for more support and information. They include:

  • ACS staff;
  • Darren Stiff Financial Adviser (SOLLA);
  • Carer Practice Advisors from SCC’s Adult Social Care;
  • AGE UK Surrey;
  • Scam Awareness team
  • and more.
Dementia talks

Age UK: Planning  for the future– on at 11am and 1.30pm

Playlist for life – on at 10am, 12 midday and 2.30pm
