Walk For Dementia
On behalf of Home Instead Senior Care, we’d like to say a massive thank you to everyone supported, shared, advertised the event and very importantly all those who took part in our event to raise money for the Alzheimer’s Society and their fight against dementia. Together we raised £837.08
The money raised will help make a difference to those supported by the Alzheimer’s Society and the services on offer:
When it comes to the success of a charity event everything depends on the support it receives both by participants and contributors. We were glad that the rain held off, but unfortunately it was quite windy. We still managed to have a good turnout of over 100 people.
- £5 could pay for one person to attend a half hour session at a monthly Dementia Café, providing information and support for people with dementia and their carers.
- £20 could pay for 100 copies of Understanding and respecting the person with dementia - one of the Society's most requested factsheets.
- £50 could fund one of our National Dementia Helpline Advisors for an hour, as they offer practical advice and emotional support to people living with dementia, their carers, family and friends.
- £120 could pay to run Talking Point for one day - the Society's 24/7 online community for all people affected by dementia.
