I met with Chris Martyn-Smith at the recent Retirement Show held in the Guildhall and was delighted to hear of the initiatives the local company is pursuing in an effort to raise local awareness of dementia.
Chris said that ‘’Eclipse HomeCare wants to help families who want a better understanding of how best to support loved ones living with the onset of dementia. This is a problem that families are increasingly having to deal with and our monthly briefings from one of our clients provide a practical insight in how best individuals can be supported whilst at home’’.
Alzheimers UK estimate that there are currently 850,000 people with dementia in the UK and that this number will rise to 1,000,000 by 2025. This is represents 1 out of every 3 people over the age of 85, so the hard fact is that many families will be touched by dementia at some stage.
The next talk in Worcester is planned for the evening of Tuesday 26th April. For more details please email info@EclipseHomeCare.co.uk
