Owner of Home Instead Bolton, David Deller attended the Dementia Awareness Day at the Bolton Market Place recently and met renowned journalist John Suchet, who became president of Dementia UK after his wife was diagnosed with the illness.
The event, which was also attended by the Mayoress of Bolton, was held to raise awareness of dementia and the support that is available to those who are affected by it. Representatives from many organisations such as The Dementia Support Group, Crossroads, and YOGA (Young Onset Group Association) attended the event.
David represented Home Instead and the services that they provide to many dementia sufferers and their families.
He commented, “It was fantastic to meet John Suchet, as he has provided much needed publicity to the cause. The event was a great success. We were treated to lovely performances from the Dementia Choir, and I am sure it helped to raise the profile of this illness.”
It is thought that there are currently 750,000 people with dementia in the UK, and often their relatives struggle to cope. The care that Home Instead provides is invaluable for elderly people and their families, and gives them piece of mind that their elderly relatives are safe in their own home. Home Instead’s services include meal preparation, medication reminders and companionship.
