Dementia Friendly Rossendale / Medequip Partnership

Medequip is working in partnership with Dementia Friendly Rossendale to run a campaign to encourage businesses in Rossendale, East Lancashire to become more dementia friendly.

There are 3 primary goals...

  • To raise awareness of dementia in our community.
  • Provide access to further learning and understanding about living with dementia.
  • To inspire Rossendale residents to create projects and actions that will ensure people living with Dementia feel included.

We have designed and printed information leaflets that provide businesses with information they need in order to take the necessary steps to become a more dementia friendly organisation.

Two-thirds of people with dementia live in the community. Many rely on retail services to maintain their independence and a good quality of life. Others just like going shopping, and want to be able to continue to do so for as long as possible. They may do this independently, or with their families or carers. However, they cannot do this without us making it easier for them.

We have also developed window acetates that will be presented to businesses as an accreditation of their efforts to become more dementia friendly. You can get involved and display the sign below. Dementia Friendly Rossendale will commit to providing Dementia Friends session to a group of your employees and will help you with an environmental audit to check where dementia friendly improvements could be made to your premises and processes.

If you would like to get involved you can contact Dementia Friendly Rossendale: www.dementiafriendlyrossendale.org
