Press Release

During Dementia Action Week (17-23 May), we will be raising awareness of dementia through various events and our Black Country Brighter Lives charity are also excited to be launching a ‘shine a light on dementia’ charity appeal.

 

Through this appeal we will be raising money to help enhance the services we already provide to our patients living with dementia, their carers and families. We want each and every one of them to have the best possible experience whilst they are in our care.  We would like to create more opportunities for our patients to engage in activities that help bring a smile to their faces, such as music and art therapy, Reminiscence Interactive Therapy Activities  and creating therapeutic outdoor spaces.

 

There are many ways that you can help us raise money for our ‘shine a light on dementia’ appeal. You could take part in one of our organised events, organise your own sponsored event and get your family, friends and colleagues to sponsor you, simply make a donation by clicking here or go to https://justgiving.com/campaign/shinealightondementia

Any donation of any amount will help make a difference. Joining in with our events will help make a difference. Organising your own sponsored event will help make a difference. Sharing our campaign will help make a difference. However you decide to support us, we would like to thank you for your kindness and your support. All funds raised will go directly towards supporting our dementia patients.
