Worthing Dementia Hub is holding a special one-stop session on October 19 to help those people affected by the disease as well as their families and carers.
Everyone is welcome to attend the three-hour forum, which will be opened by Bob Smytherman, the hub's chairman and Worthing town crier, at 5pm.
The Future Care planning event is being hosted by Worthing Pavilion Bowling Club in Pavilion Road, with the club offering drinks and light refreshments.
Lynsey Tran, the hub co-ordinator, said: "Listening to feedback from people at our hub in South Farm Road, we know how essential it is that people affected by dementia and their families/carers are given the information and knowledge to make the best choices and decisions around future care they may need.
"WPBC have been working with the dementia hub since May 2023, when they held a dementia engagement event, and have since volunteered their space and time to the dementia hub's social groups. From running dementia friendly bowls sessions and cooking a variety of delicious lunches they have made everyone feel welcome and shown what an inclusive community space it is. "Thanks to our sponsors Promedica24 and Carpenter Box, the evening is being offered completely free." There will be three short presentations, with an opportunity to talk to care and legal professionals. Lynsey added: "Jo White-Smith from Promedica24 will be our first guest speaker. Her company specialises in live-in care, companionship and respite care. "Jo will be followed by Gill Lynes from Carpenter Box and Carewise, who will provide Information and advice on paying for long-term care. "The last speaker for the evening will be Conrad Bool from Tarring Manor Care Home, offering information on their new care home in Tarring.
