Guardian talks Dementia with Home Instead

Susan Lawlor and Trevor Brocklebank of Home Instead spoke to Rachel Williams from The Guardian on Tuesday, offering their advice on how we need to be better prepared to deal with Dementia within local communities. Dementia / Alzheimer's Workshops were highlighted as an important resource for advocacy, something we feel very strongly about at Home Instead Barnet. 

"Home Instead believes private companies, third sector organisations and local communities need to work together to cope with the problems posed by an ageing population. Those who have attended the workshops include not just family members but also police, fire service and NHS staff, as well as members of clinical commissioning groups and local charities."
