Home Instead Senior Care has launched a campaign to raise awareness of dementia to thousands of people UK wide.
‘Care About Dementia’ is Home Instead Senior Care’s campaign kicking off during this week’s Alzheimer’s Society’s Dementia Action Week.
As part of the week, which runs until May 26, Home Instead CAREGivers will be sharing caring advice and tips to help people with dementia to live well.
In the last year, more than 1,100 Home Instead CAREGivers have been trained in City & Guilds accredited dementia awareness to help tackle the disease.
Martin Jones, managing director of Home Instead Senior said: “Almost all of us know someone affected by dementia and so we all have a reason to take action and learn more about it. Care About Dementia is all about sharing information and useful information with the public if they are caring for a family member, friend or relative with dementia. “
He added: “With so many of our elderly clients affected by dementia, our CAREGivers are passionate about helping them to live well and have so much advice to share. The more we talk about dementia, the more we can all learn how to help people living with it.”
Home Instead said searching for #CareAboutDementia on social media will allow people to view useful advice and tips.
