Dementia Awareness Week
It’s been a calorific week at Rogers & Norton, helping to promote Dementia Awareness Week in Norwich as a proud member of the Norwich City Dementia Action Alliance. Staff at the offices in Norwich & Attleborough have been holding bake sales on a daily basis, to help raise funds for a specialist Admiral Dementia Nurse in Norfolk.
We made a commitment a couple of years ago to become a Dementia Friendly organisation, so we could help raise awareness of the condition and to promote actions that can be taken to improve the life of those living with it.
During that time Laura Rumsey has achieved Dementia Champion status and gives regular workshops to aid the understanding for those affected by friends and family members living with the condition. This week we have contacted companies that we work with, to offer dementia information sessions to their staff.
If you are interested in attending one of our information sessions then please contact us for further information.
We have also taken steps to improve our own environment by redecorating our reception to ensure it is more dementia friendly, together with improved signage and literature.
We have also dedicated the annual Footgolf event that we host at Eaton Park, to help raise funds for a much needed specialist Admiral Dementia Nurse in Norfolk.
