Paisley Court will be a hive of fun and fundraising activities during national Dementia Awareness Week, which runs from 20th-26th May and seeks to dispel some of the myths and fears around dementia.
Our Home Manager Allison Kennie says: “When people hear a diagnosis of dementia, they think it is the end, but it is not. With access to the right care, facilities and activities, a diagnosis can actually mean the start of a new chapter in your life. At Paisley Court, our residents and their families are certainly focused on having fun and creating special memories.”
As well as enjoying a tea dance and entertainers, the residents, their relatives and the team are looking to raise as much money as possible for Dementia Research.
As well as bingo, music therapy and a tea dance, some of the brave male members of staff have volunteered to face a waxing to raise funds for the charity that is investigating the causes and possible cures for dementia.
Registered Nurse Pauline McConville said: “Three of our male colleagues have been very brave and they have volunteered to have their legs and chests waxed in a sponsored event. We’ll just have to pretend that the tears in their eyes are in gratitude for all the donations and not a reflection of the pain us ladies know all too well! So far we’ve raised over £100.”
Once the fundraising amount is totted-up, the team will be approaching Care UK for matched funding for all of the home’s good work.
