Carers need lots of support!

Two speakers at our book launch told us about some valuable initiatives:

Margaret Dangoor @mpdrichmond told us about Dementia Friends – an easy way to share information that helps remove some of the incomprehension and fear that are so common:

Margaret is a trustee of several organisations, including Carers UK, supporting family carers, and the Centre for Better Ageing

Philippa Armitage is a trustee of Dementia UK, which runs the Admiral Nurses programme, providing specialist dementia support for families that care for someone.

They are only available in certain parts of the country (not including Merton, where we live), so we were challenged to find ways to increase their cover.
