Older Person’s Month
May is Older Person’s Month at Creative Support. In celebration of our older person’s services, we held several events across the country, including a plant potting party at our Elkin Court service in Partington, Greater Manchester. Many of our services also held or participated in events to celebrate the Queen’s 90th birthday, including Birch Court in Stockport and Rowan Village in Stoke-on-Trent.
This week is also Dementia Awareness Week. Many of our staff members have signed up to become ‘Dementia Friends’. Dementia Friends learn about what it’s like to live with the condition and then turn their knowledge to action. Anyone can become a Dementia Friend, you can learn more about how to become one by clicking here.
We are now proud to have 53 older person’s services supporting 1,850 people.
