Charles Bonnet Awareness Group

December 5th, 2018

This group is for people experiencing ‘Phantom Visions’ as Charles Bonnet Syndrome is often called and for people who wish to learn more and support the group.

Charles Bonnet Syndrome causes sufferers to see images that are not real. These visual hallucinations are not due to the onset of dementia but are caused by loss of sight. The hallucinations can disturb and debilitate, impacting negatively on your daily life.

Please do not suffer in silence.
Come and join us at:
CHRISTOPHER GRANGE SIGHT LOSS LEARNING HUB, YOUENS WAY, L14 2EW

THE 2nd FRIDAY OF EVERY MONTH,  TIME: 1PM-3PM   

 CONTACT: Mike or Monique on 0151 220 2525

 

 

 

 

 

 

Activities – November 2018

December 4th, 2018

In honour of Remembrance Day our residents made wreathes which included the names of their loved ones, we placed them on the Alter in our Chapel for Remembrance Sunday.

Our regular activities such as book club, pom-pom making, armchair exercise and our shopping trips with lunch on a Wednesday are thoroughly enjoyed by residents. 

St Edwards College students continue to visit each Monday to play bingo with our residents, visiting a different unit each Monday.

We celebrated Madge and Carolyn`s birthdays this month – Happy Birthday to them both!

Entertainment this month was provided by a Ukulele Band which proved to be popular with resident’s families and friends coming along to this event at our Sight Loss Learning Hub.
