Stroud care home helps town become dementia friendly

Home news

The team at Scarlet House care home in Ebley is helping to create a dementia-friendly community in Stroud with local people invited to the latest in a series of dementia friends events.

With 350 people already having attended one of the events, the team at the care home on Westwood Road is going to open its doors on Tuesday 23rd February and invite those in the local community to attend from either 11am-12.30pm or 1.30pm-3pm.

With the aim of creating a more dementia-friendly community, Jim McLeod, customer relations manager at Scarlet House and a Dementia Friends champion, will be leading the free sessions to help local people understand what it is like to live with dementia. 

Jim MacLeod, said: “So far over 350 people in Stroud have attended our Dementia Friend’s sessions and it is so important to keep this number growing if we are to reach our aim of making Stroud a dementia-friendly community. 

“At Scarlet House we have a commitment to encourage others to learn about dementia and we are really proud of the progress we have made by supporting Dementia Friends. We want to educate people, but also help the community to turn their knowledge into action to making our community more aware of those living with dementia. 

“We look forward to opening our doors to what promises to be an insightful and inspiring event for the local community. Following the sell-out success of our recent dementia awareness event, we would urge those interested in attending to book a place.”
