Bell House holds Learning to Care speaker events every quarter, bringing together expert speakers on a topic with opportunities for Q&A and panel discussion throughout. These events are free to attend. Topics that we have covered so far include legal matters, advice from a geriatrician, and dementia.
The Learning to Care project is demand-led; we cover the topics that you tell us you’d like to learn more about! If you’d like to share your ideas, meet with one of the team to discuss your experiences as a carer, or get involved as a speaker or in our films, please get in touch with Emily & Erenie at [email protected]
Our fourth Learning to Care event will be focused on 'planning ahead'. We will look at preparing for the next stages of caring such as setting up Lasting Powers of Attorney or Advance Decisions, applying for benefits such as Attendance Allowance and Carer's Allowance and, finally, encouraging people to talk about their wishes towards the end of their lives, including where they want to die and their funeral plans. We will also be presenting our new film 'Lasting Powers of Attorney: A how to guide'
A fuller list of speakers will be available closer to the event.
Carers’ Support Group
Bell House and Link Age Southwark are in the process of setting up a support group for people caring for someone diagnosed with dementia. If you would like to register your interest in this group, please email Emily and Saira at [email protected]
