Congratulations to  our founding director Marlene who is now a Dementia Champion.

Dementia Friends is a social action movement that aims to increase the understanding of Dementia and inspire people to take action to support people affected by Dementia. Dementia is becoming a bigger issue for many elderly people in the UK. By increasing our  understanding of the condition it will put us in a better position to be able to care for people that have dementia. It is estimated that there are now 850,000 people with dementia in the UK and care agencies must find ways to be able to keep up with the growing number of people needing help with the condition.

At Ascot care we put special emphasis on our dementia training. This means that all of our care workers have understanding of the condition. Ascot Care work with many people who are affected by dementia, we have found that the dementia training has gone a long way in advancing peoples understanding of the condition. Initiatives like dementia friends are really helpful in raising awareness and educating people on dementia.

If you know someone with dementia who would like some support please contact us.
