Dementia Advisers on the front line of the COVID-19 crisis
Dementia Advisers on the front line of the COVID-19 crisis - Project
The Alzheimer's Society is using a �200000 grant to ensure the Dementia Advisers service can continue offering expert support advice and a connection to people across Northern Ireland with dementia. Due to COVID-19 the group are using the funding to make welfare calls and keep in touch with members online offering practical and emotional support advice on how to stay active at home and virtual singing groups or �ringing and singing� for those not online. The project helps reduce isolation and anxiety of both dementia sufferers and their carers.
A larger amount of funding (between £10,001 and £500,000) for projects working with your community – whether that’s a community living in the same area, or people with similar interests or life experiences.
