Retirement Living residents fundraise for dementia awareness
18 May 2016
Generous Trust residents will don party hats, share cakes and treats and take part in raffles to fundraise for Age UK as part of their celebrations. All raffle prizes have been kindly donated by local supermarkets and monies raised will be donated to the Age UK Diamond drop-in appeal. These regular drop-in sessions offer advice, help and support to older people with dementia who may be lonely and socially isolated, and their carers, families and friends.
The Trust provides the facilities for the Diamond drop-in sessions at five of our 37 Retirement Living schemes, with four meetings across Telford and one in Shrewsbury. The volunteer team behind the drop-in sessions, a mix of Trust Retirement Living staff, residents and members of the public, scooped a deserved award win for their hard work at the Clinical Commissions Group (CCG) Care with Confidence awards last year.
Age UK also run Diamond drop-in sessions across Telford, Bridgnorth and Shrewsbury. For more information call 01743 233123.
