We work with many clients whose families have been affected by dementia, so offering our support in funding research around this condition is something we’re very passionate about. We have worked to raise money for The Alzheimer’s Society across many different events such as our Dementia Action Week and Dementia Friends community sessions.
In September 2018, we arranged a memory walk for people living with dementia, with proceeds going to The Alzheimer’s Society. We wanted to support people and their families in the UK who are affected by Dementia and Alzheimer’s.
Having volunteered to be Dementia Friends Champions, Trudi Scrivener, of Ashridge Home Care, is now delivering Dementia Friends sessions to people across Buckinghamshire, Hertfordshire and Oxfordshire.
It’s time to take action .. Unite with us this #DementiaActionweek and help us improve the understanding of dementia and reduce stigma.
