We Support Dementia Friends

Category : Uncategorized

Since Rance Healthcare Services Ltd became Dementia Friends, it has given our staff a greater understanding of how they can make life better for people with dementia, both when they are in their own homes and when they are back home in the community.

Becoming Dementia Friends has made Rance Healthcare Services staff think more about the little things we do to make a big difference to our clients. For instance, looking through an old photo album with a client can bring a smile to their face. It can trigger memories they remember or recognise something that was or is important to them.

The information sessions from Dementia Friends have highlighted some of the other things that our staff can do to help others with dementia to carry out their daily lives. The support can be anything from helping or doing their shopping, to simply recognising that people with dementia may take longer to carry out everyday tasks and so showing them extra patience.
