Homecare provider Right at Home Cardiff & Newport is thrilled to announce the launch of its official charity partnership with the Alzheimer’s Society.
Right at Home has pledged to raise more than £20,000 for the charity across its network of 59 locally-owned offices in the UK and the two organisations will also work together to share best practice and knowledge on the disease.
Right at Home regularly holds Dementia Friends information sessions but it is now committed to creating 1,000 new Friends within the next 12 months. Dementia Friends is an Alzheimer’s Society initiative which aims to give people a better understanding of what it is like living with Dementia.
Right at Home Cardiff & Newport will be kick-starting its fundraising efforts during Dementia Action Week running from May 20-26th, before getting baking for Cupcake Day on June 13th – one of Alzheimer’s Society’s flagship events.
