In June 2019 our Director Dee Oswald attended a Dementia Friends Champion session in Southampton, Dee spent the day speaking with other members of the community and professionals to find out how we can support those with Dementia and Alzheimer's and how to support them in continuing to enjoy the life that they currently lead.
Since June Dee has been training our CAREGivers at Home Instead Senior Care Isle of Wight in becoming Dementia Friends, we are pleased that now all of our active CAREGivers are recognised as Dementia Friends and proudly wear their Dementia Friends badge on their lanyard. This not only benefits them while caring and supporting our clients but also to help promote the Dementia Friendly Island we are working towards within our community.
Dee is happy to attend small business settings or community groups to hold the Dementia Friends session in our local community. Please do get in touch with Home Instead Isle of Wight on 01983 240015 if you would be interested in hearing more information on the Dementia Friends sessions.
