Dementia Awareness Day
Customer News, News
We're hosting a dementia awareness day!
We will be supporting Dementia Awareness Week by hosting an informative event at our offices on Horninglow Street in Burton. The event is open to everyone and free to attend.
On Friday 24th May, 10am - 4pm the Virtual Dementia Tour Bus will be stopping at Trinity Square.
Statistics show that one in three people that were born in the UK in 2015 are expected to die from dementia.
The Virtual Dementia Tour helps carers, colleagues and family members to truly understand that by making adjustments to the care provided can really start to improve the lives of people living with dementia. By walking in the shoes of a person with dementia, you can begin to understand the issues that they encounter everyday. You will experience being confused, isolated, lost, intimidated, vulnerable and much more.
The event will also play host to a range of support and advice groups, and health initiatives
- Firstcall 24/7
- Burton Albion Community Trust
- Everyone Health
- Diabetes UK
You may even spot a couple of local celebrities on the day!
