Nothing can truly prepare families for how dementia can turn their lives upside down and Covid-19 has brought additional challenges which can be incredibly hard to navigate. Without support, dementia can pull a family apart.
But we are here to help. Dementia UK helps families manage their future with dementia by providing the life-changing support of our dementia specialist Admiral Nurses.
Admiral Nurses have the time to listen and the knowledge to solve problems. Working in the community, on our free Dementia Helpline, in GP practices and hospitals, and in Admiral Nurse clinics, they are a lifeline to families facing dementia.
Companies can help us be there for more families affected by dementia by fundraising for Dementia UK so we can support and develop our nurses, giving people the strength to cope with the bad days and the energy to enjoy the good days.
Zurich Community Trust
As an official charity partner of the Zurich Community Trust 2018 – 2021, Dementia UK is delighted to benefit from a three-year grant which will fund an Admiral Nurse working on our Admiral Nurse Dementia Helpline, along with supporting the Helpline’s core telephone costs.
We are extremely grateful for the support from Zurich Community Trust to help us meet a significant rise in calls from families in desperate need and, give them expert care, advice and support that is often very difficult to find elsewhere.
Kate Hodges, former Programme Manager at Zurich Community Trust said:
Every grant award is only made possible by Zurich’s amazing employees who fundraise and donate to Zurich Community Trust, whose giving is then matched by a business donation to Zurich Community Trust.
When asked, it was clear from the start that dementia was an issue close to many employee’s hearts which was why the Dementia UK project supporting an Admiral Nurse on the Helpline was a popular choice.
If the company you work forcan help us make sure that no family faces dementia alone then, we would love to hear from you. Please call us on 020 8036 5407, or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
