How to communicate remotely with a person who has dementia
The Coronavirus pandemic may mean that many people living apart from a friend or relative with dementia are finding it more difficult to communicate. Many are turning to telephone contact or video calls to check in on their loved ones.
Here's our tips for communicating with someone with dementia remotely.
Together we can make a difference - when we Donate it for dementia nurses
From Monday 8th June we invite you to Donate it for dementia nurses - donate the costs of everyday activities you aren’t currently spending and make a difference to families affected by dementia.
This could be the cost of a morning coffee, your daily commute, a gym class or a cinema trip. In return for your donation, we have some great suggestions for how you can re-create your everyday activities from home – for example, if you donate the cost of your morning coffee and pastry, we will share Admiral Nurse Vicky’s recipe for American cupcakes; and you will have helped us answer three calls to our Helpline.
People's stories are a great way to increase awareness and understanding of dementia. If you have a story you would like to share, we would love to hear from you. We’re passionate about making sure that your story and the impact of our Admiral Nurses get the attention and awareness they deserve. In turn this will help generate donations, enabling us to provide more Admiral Nurse services across the country.
