East Midlands Care Provider launches Dementia Advice Toolkit

Respectful Care

Posted 18th May 2021

Respectful Care, a leading home care provider based in the East Midlands with branches in Mansfield, Nottingham, Rotherham, and Chesterfield has launched an advice guide and complimentary consultation service for people looking after those in the early stages of dementia.

Team members from across the Respectful Care Group have collectively put together a short ‘top tips’ guide for Dementia Action Week, which is taking place this week (17th – 23rd May) and will be running a free telephone advice service throughout the rest of May, commencing today.

The Respectful Care group cares for over 500 people, many of whom are living with dementia, and they employ over 200 carers.

Dementia Advice Toolkit

Commenting on the launch of the new dementia advice toolkit, Mark Docherty, CEO of the Respectful Care Group, said: “For those first told they have dementia, it can be a very scary, anxious and upsetting time. Equally, for those looking after somebody who has not long been diagnosed, it can be just as hard.”

“Dementia Action Week is all about encouraging people to take action to improve the lives of those affected by dementia. There are lots of fantastic helplines and charities out there. However, we wanted to do our bit for those specifically situated in the East Midlands. We have a fantastic team with a wealth of experience and knowledge, and we want to help as much as we can. That’s why we’ve put together our guide and also a new consultation service where people can phone through and chat to us.”

The advice guide put together by the Respectful Care team can be found at How Best To Support Someone Living With Dementia. To book a call with one of the Respectful Care team Contact Us.

Mark concluded: “There are over 70,000 people with dementia in the East Midlands. Therefore, thousands of people in the region caring for those living with the condition. We need to support each other more now than ever, especially with everything that has happened in this last year. Talking about our frustrations, challenges and problems can be a huge help. As a nation, we aren’t very good at this, but getting better. We need to open up and ask for help. So, we want the people of the East Midlands to know that we are here to support them.”
