Liverpool-based law firm JB Leitch says it’s “proud” to continue its support of an award-winning dementia awareness programme in the city.
The company, which specialises in property law, is sponsoring the ‘House of Memories’ initiative as it offers training and activities to enable carers to provide person-centred care for people living with the disease.
Led by the Museum of Liverpool at the Pier Head, the project includes free training workshops at the landmark attraction each month from February until November.
Open to health and social care professionals, or family and friends who want to learn more, the classes offer valuable information and links to other activities and resources available.
As part of the House of Memories, the museum has also created ‘memory suitcases’ for use as part of group reminiscence sessions.
The suitcases, which can be booked by groups who have attended the workshops, contain photos, memorabilia and objects that can help promote conversations about memories of days gone by.
Michelle Leitch, practice manager at JB Leitch which has an office on Duke Street in the city centre, says: “The House of Memories workshops and memory suitcases are a fantastic resource and JB Leitch is proud to support such a worthwhile programme.”
