How your company can support Dementia UK – we need your support now more than ever
Every three minutes, someone in the UK is diagnosed with dementia. The challenges of families facing dementia are greater and more complex than ever before.
Dementia can be devastating. It can rob someone’s memory, personality, and ability to communicate. The toll on families can be catastrophic, watching their loved one deteriorate. The challenges of families facing dementia could easily be forgotten in these difficult times. Increased isolation and the closure of groups and networks means that vital support can be very hard to find. This is why the dementia specialist support available through our services, including the Admiral Nurse Dementia Helpline, is a lifeline to carers who are feeling isolated and alone.
We need help now more than we ever have, so we can meet rising demand and be there for thousands of vulnerable families facing dementia throughout this pandemic.
Information for families looking after someone living with dementia
We are so grateful to our corporate partners and all companies who have provided funding to help grow our Helpline – our most vital and frontline service during the Covid-19 crisis. These funds will help ensure that communities have access to the expert care and advice they need during this incredibly difficult time.
Following their donation of £25,000, Debbie Robinson, chief executive at Central England Co-op said:
As the demand for the great work and expertise of Dementia UK’s team of Admiral Nurses and Helpline inevitably increases during these worrying and uncertain times, Central England Co-op was determined to throw our support behind the charity. I’m so glad this donation has been so gratefully received and is already making a positive difference to the help Dementia UK can offer those people with dementia and their families.
No one should face dementia alone. Please help us be there for families facing dementia, today and into the future.
