Purple Angel Ambassador for Dementia at Next Generation
It is estimated that there are about three-quarters of a million people in the UK living with dementia. This figure is likely to rise to 1 million by 2025. The term ‘dementia ‘ describes a set of symptoms which include loss of memory, mood changes and problems with communication and reasoning. These symptoms occur when the brain is damaged by certain diseases, including Alzheimer’s Disease and damage caused by a series of small strokes. Awareness of dementia is becoming increasingly important and The Purple Angel aim to increase this awareness and people’s understanding of Dementia.
We are very excited to announce that our Kim has become a Purple Angel Ambassador to raise awareness for Dementia. Kim has lots of information to hand about Dementia if you or anyone you know would like some information booklets, just ask.
We also have a recent blog post on our company blog talking about Dementia and Dementia friendly parking spaces
Did you know that we provide in house Dementia Awareness training for all of our staff when they start working for us.
