HALESWORTH dementia


CARERS’ FUND


WE have had a quiet month for events in the lead-up to Christmas, but on Saturday 17th December some of us will join the Rotary Club of Southwold & District outside Halesworth Co-op collecting for our funds. Southwold Rotary have been very generous in fundraising in this way for the last few years, and are continuing again this year. We are so grateful for their time and generosity once more. The Triple Plea are once again holding their ‘Christmas Market’ on the same afternoon where we will have an ‘awareness’ stall. This will be followed by carol singing with the u3A Melodymakers ladies choir. Our latest film ‘’Eddie the


Eagle’’ was thoroughly enjoyed by our smaller than usual audience. In partnership with


PATRICK Stead Hospital League of Friends have pledged £55,685 towards the Information and Support Centre (ISC) which takes the total raised to £710,000. The Trustees are very grateful to the League of Friends for their support for the project and also all the efforts of so many people who over the last three and a half years have helped us to achieve the target. The ISC will be a drop in


Centre for anyone who has been diagnosed with cancer or any other life limiting illness. It will also be there for their families, friends and carers. At the Centre you will be able to have help with understanding your diagnosis and receive supportive care. The ethos of the Centre will be one of providing a positive, family friendly atmosphere, respecting confidentiality, in surroundings that encourage people to relax and feel they are being listened to, and where their questions are answered and explored at their own pace. That support will include financial and benefit advice, complementary


therapies,


counselling, children and family support services, bereavement support, health and wellbeing days, headscarf tying, “feel good” support and sign posting to other agencies. The Centre will be a very important hub for many organisations who wish to use it as a venue, such as the Parkinson and Alzheimer support groups. Your Centre will serve the


rural 15 mile radius around Halesworth. We have been meeting Patients Participation Groups (PPGs) and visited some of the GP surgeries to explain what we are doing and will continue to do this over the next year before we open. We will also be very happy talk to any group who would like more information or who are involved in support groups themselves. Even though we have reached


The Cut we choose a variety of films we hope you will enjoy. Our next film on Wednesday 18th January is ‘’8 Days a Week - The Beatles” This has received rave reviews so hopefully we have chosen well and look forward to seeing you there. Advance notice for March


we have managed to secure .’’Bridget Jones’ Baby’’ film, surely a hit with everyone. Please come and support us.


We are helping many families locally; providing care for those with dementia enabling family carers to have a much needed break. Your help is vital and valuable so we can help others. On behalf of our committee I


wish all our supporters and all readers a very Happy Christmas and a healthy 2017.

. NEWS FROM BEECH HOUSE


THIS month started with our fireworks party which went off with a bang! It was a lovely evening and was enjoyed by all with a beautiful fireworks display. During the month we have


been running a shoe box appeal for Rosedale’s who are supporting the Operation Christmas Child which is the Samaritan’s Purse Campaign. People have been so generous with this and we have sent off 15 boxes which will hopefully make these children’s Christmas magical. It is such a good cause that we support each year. As a home we would like to say a huge thank you to everyone who donated and made a box, you have all made a real difference. We would like to thank


Martin and Annie who came in on November 25th to entertain.


You never fail to brighten our afternoons with your musical talents! Sadly this month we said goodbye to a longstanding member of staff Jacquie Piper. Jacquie has been with us at Beech House for nearly 24 years. We all got together and had an afternoon of music and dancing to celebrate her retirement. We hope that Jacquie is already relaxing and has a fabulous retirement. Jacquie will be missed very much from Beech House. Things are starting to get


very busy with Christmas fast approaching. Residents are busy making items to sell at our mulled wine evening which will no doubt be a great evening as usual!


Birthday greetings this month go to Ernie, Meg and Molly N.


Halesworth Dementia Support Project


DEMENTIA can be a worrying and confusing condition and it can be hard to know how to cope with the challenges it brings. Whilst Alison and Jonny welcome calls from people affected by or have questions about dementia, there is other support available too. Talking Point is an online community for anyone who is affected by dementia. It’s a place to ask questions, read others’ experiences, share information and feel supported. Anyone with access to the internet can browse the information on Talking Point, but if you want to communicate with others and ask your own questions, you will need to register. Signing up is


very easy, just visit alzheimers. org.uk/talkingpoint. Alison will be at Wenhaston


Village Hall from 10.30am – 12pm on Wednesday 21st December, so please pop in and see her if you would like to access any support or information about dementia. She will also be running a Dementia Friends session at the hall at 10.30am on Saturday 14th January. If you would like to speak to


Alison or Jonny, their contact details are Alison Begley on 07773 230339 or email alison. begley@alzheimers.org.uk or Jonny Hawes on 07860 912458 or email jonathan.hawes@ alzheimers.org.uk
