Brabners and FPC support local dementia awareness programme, House of Memories

Brabners and FPC support local dementia awareness programme, House of Memories

Friday 20th March 2015

Law firm Brabners and financial advisers, the Financial Planning Corporation (FPC) recently joined forces to deliver the third in a series of events to raise awareness of National Museums Liverpool’s House of Memories project, which provides support to people who are living with dementia and their carers.

Based on the theme of ‘Connecting Generations’, Mark Feeny, Head of Private Client at Brabners in Liverpool and Moira O’Shaughnessy, Partner at FPC in Southport, shared their expert views about the legal and financial dilemmas that affect families and provided an insight into the challenges that can impact on different generations of families. This was followed by a presentation from Carol Rogers, Executive Director of Education and Visitors at National Museums Liverpool, about the progress that is being made with the House of Memories project.

House of Memories targets carers, health and social care providers and helps them to deliver a positive quality of life experience for people living with dementia. The training programme provides participants with information about dementia as well as skills and resources for practical memory activities. The programme recognises that museums across the UK are expert at recording and caring for people’s memories - whether they are thousands of years old or within ‘living memory’ – and demonstrates how a museum can provide the health and social care sector with practical skills and knowledge to facilitate access to untapped cultural resources within their local area.

Mark Feeny of Brabners said: “We were delighted to have the opportunity to raise awareness of the House of Memories project. We have had over 200 clients attending these events and have had wonderful generosity and support. We hope to continue to support this innovative project in future.”

Moira O’Shaughnessy at Financial Planning Corporation added: “The Museum of Liverpool’s exhibits act as a powerful means of connecting parents and grandparents with the next generation so their stories and memories can be shared.”
