Home Instead, who provide personalised support and assistance to older people  living  in and around the towns of Harrogate , Ripon and Thirsk,  have kindly provided local charity Dementia Forward  with a stock of very useful eco-friendly cloth bags emblazoned with the charity’s logo.

Dementia Forward support people living with dementia and those who care for them, in the local area of Ripon and Harrogate. They provide a number of services and different avenues of support and information to everyone, whether they have received a diagnosis, have concerns about their memory, support someone with memory problems, work in dementia care or just want to know more.

Owner of Home Instead, Sheena Van Parys was only too happy to support the charity and supply the bags after Netty Newell, Dementia Forward’s Community Liaison Officer mentioned in conversation how useful bags would be to hold all the information and advice that they give to people when they visit them at home.

Sheena Van Parys added; ‘It is great to be able to support Dementia Forward and help them as they do such fantastic work on a local level and provide services that really make a difference to people’s lives.’

Everyone at Dementia Forward is very grateful for the sponsorship of the bags and the photo proves that they wear them well.
