Within Stockport there is a newly reformed Dementia Action Alliance, which sees organisations and agencies coming together to share best practice and take action on dementia.
Carecall has applied to join this alliance and is currently undertaking work to meet the commitments we have made.
This includes ensuring all members of our team become Dementia Friends, by undertaking Dementia Awareness sessions. We also commit to improving training around dementia and will be working with EDUCATE Stockport to develop Dementia Champions within our service.
EDUCATE is a Stockport based group of people who live with dementia and who raise awareness about dementia, in order to reduce the stigma about the condition and overcome isolation.
