March 24th saw us win the Community Partnership award at the North Nott’s Business Awards for outstanding efforts and dedication to spreading the awareness of Dementia.
Holding both Dementia Friends information sessions and free family workshops, anybody can come along to learn how they can support a loved one with dementia or simply to understand the illness on a deeper level.
One in three people will develop Dementia, that is why it is important that we help to raise the profile of Dementia.
Our Dementia friend’s information sessions and free family workshops will help people understand more about what it is like to live with dementia, and, how we can support somebody with this.
Having already trained around 100 people to be Dementia friends, we have already taken on West Burton power station, Retford fire station and Retford’s HSBC bank and are keen to hear from more local businesses and communities who would like to learn more about Dementia and how they can support this themselves.
If you wish to attend or find out more about how you can become a Dementia Friend yourself, then please contact Home Instead Retford and Gainsborough on 01777 712629.
