Home Instead at Poplar Fire Station Dementia Awareness

Dementia Awareness Day at Poplar Fire Station

We recently attended a dementia awareness day at Poplar Fire Station, where local residents that lived with dementia were given a special opportunity to come and see the inner workings of a busy fire station, with their families and carers. Visitors were able to see fire trucks in operation and watch live training exercises, as well as talk to front-line staff about their experiences with the London Fire Brigade. The event demonstrated a fantastic drive by the London Fire Brigade to raise awareness of dementia within individual communities in London. Our thanks to all the wonderful staff who were at Poplar Fire Station for hosting this event and for giving their time and attention to every attendee.
