Weʼre raising £15,000 to help fund a Dementia Support Worker for the patients & carers of the Barnstaple Alliance (Brannam, Fremington, Litchdon & Queens Practices).

Don't have time to donate right now?

Story

The four GP practices of Barnstaple Alliance Primary Care Network (Brannam, Fremington, Litchdon & Queens Medical Centres) need support to help fund at least 50% of their dedicated Alzheimer's Society Dementia Support Worker who provides care and advice to their patients with dementia and their carers.
From 1st April there will no longer be any national funding for this role so the Practices are doing all they can to retain the service for their patients.

1 in 11 people aged over 65 have dementia in the UK and the number is increasing. So many of you may be affected by this condition or know someone who is.

What’s one of the most important things when supporting both those who have dementia and their families? Consistency of person and place around them. Having understanding carers and trained experienced support over a number of years is essential. This gives the patient who has dementia and their families the opportunity to make a very strong therapeutic bond. This is something that all patients who have dementia and their families and care givers feel is the most important factor to their care.
This is what Dementia Support Workers help with and are an invaluable part of the care that the GP Practices provide.
The Practices work with the Alzheimer's Society to ensure the Dementia Support Worker is highly skilled and knowledgeable about all aspects of dementia.

If you can help support their work with a donation of whatever size it will be gratefully received and enable the Dementia Support Worker to help more patients and carers every day.
