During the month of Dementia and Alzheimer’s in September, we participated in several events about Dementia care at home.
Dementia and Alzheimer’s are not part of normal ageing. These diseases affect brain function and directly lead to memory loss, communication difficulty, or struggles in daily life. They require a long-term care plan and can be challenging for newly diagnosed patients and their families.
Visiting Angels West London understands the difficulties when families look after Dementia patients at home without guidance and advice from the experts. With years of experience in home care, we felt responsible for supporting the elderly community in West and Southwest London.
Two Community Talks – Dementia Care At Home
We cooperated with Friend of Charing Cross Hospital Charity in two community talks about Dementia care at home to guide family members through practical applications to improve the life quality of their beloved ones.
Over 30 attendees showed interest in this topic. And we hope that our presentation can prepare them better for the upcoming obstacles.
Free MP3s for Dementia Patients
We are glad to cooperate with Norman to deliver MP3s with 15 favourite songs chosen by the family members to send to our Dementia clients.
Joining With Partners To Raise Awareness Of Dementia And Alzheimer’s Among The West And Southwest London Community
Visiting Angels West London aims to expand the network to maximize the benefits for our clients. We work with experts in health care, non-profit organizations, and charities that share the same vision as us.
Our partners’ networks are the perfect channel to spread the message about Dementia and Alzheimer’s among the community. Therefore, we asked our partners to display promotional materials like magnets, pins, informative posters, and leaflets to maximize information accessibility.
Finally, all the efforts were to raise awareness and improve the life quality of Dementia patients in West and Southwest London. We hope that our actions can contribute to the benefits of the elderly community, especially those suffering from Dementia and Alzheimer’s.
