Abbey Wood Lodge marks World Alzheimer’s Day

Abbey Wood Lodge marked World Alzheimer's Day on Friday 21st September.

Residents from Abbey Wood Lodge descended on Southport’s Ramada Plaza Hotel for an afternoon of reminiscence and of course, a delicious lunch with friends from Hesketh Park Lodge, Parklands Lodge and Woodlands Lodge

Led by supporters of Athena Healthcare Group, ex-Everton players Ian Snodin and Graham Stuart, residents enjoyed conversations about how various sports have changed over time with football the hot topic of the afternoon.

World Alzheimer’s Day falls on the 21st September each year and is part of a month-long campaign dedicated to raising awareness and challenging the stigma that surrounds dementia.

Abbey Wood Lodge has purpose built facilities to provide a safe and responsive environment for its residents living with conditions such as Alzheimer’s or vascular dementia.

“They treated her as a part of the family.”
