Many of our customers experience dementia and we are proud to be supporting Dementia Action Week 2018 from 21 - 27 May.

Dementia Action Week is a week long campaign run by the Alzheimers' Society to help raise awareness and bring focus to the difference that people can make to support someone living with dementia.

We thought we would share a short video from Alzheimers' society here about Pamela's story of living with dementia:


This year, we are joining with the Alzheimers' society's campaign of making a difference by sharing a suggested action on our social media each day as we seek to encourage our community to take an action and make a difference.

There are seven actions that have been suggested and these are:

  • I will make time to listen
  • I will talk to people
  • I will be there for carers and loved ones too
  • I will ask if someone needs help if they look confused
  • I will ask questions and learn about dementia
  • I will be patient
  • I will carry on inviting people out
  • I will make time to listen
