NRS Healthcare supports Dementia Action Week 2019

Colleagues around NRS Healthcare supported Dementia Action Week 20-26th May 2019 through a number of events.

Dementia Action Week takes place in May each year and unites people, workplaces, schools and communities to take action and improve the lives of people living with dementia.

In 2019 thousands of people took action across England, Wales and Northern Ireland to help people living with dementia in their communities.

The main action prompted everyone to start conversations with people living with dementia they know to reduce isolation and loneliness.

Over twenty colleagues became Dementia Friends after attending inhouse training organised by our Dementia Champion, Occupational Therapy Assistant, Sharon Stevens.

 Assistive Technology Manager, Natasha Salway took part in an event on Amersham market day, highlighting services available to those livinge with dementia, or carers supporting people living with dementia.

Natasha shared a stall in the high street with representatives from Age UK and a local carers charity. Throughout the day Natasha shatred information with members of the public about how Assistive Technology can help those living with dementia.
