RMBI Care Co. joins Dementia Action Alliance to support people with dementia

27 September 2017

Care provider RMBI Care Co. has joined Dementia Action Alliance to connect with over 150 similar organisations across England to support people living with dementia.

Dementia Action Alliance (DAA) brings its members together to ensure that people with dementia and their carers have a better experience when accessing care and support.

The group, which formed in 2010 with the launch of the National Dementia Declaration, has so far achieved a number of positive outcomes for people with dementia, including the creation of dementia friendly buildings, awareness building in local schools, and creating a dementia friendly hospital charter. It also campaigns for improved outcomes for groups including LGBT+, people in rural communities and Black, Asian, Minority Ethnics (BAME).

Anne Child, Specialist Pharmacy and Dementia Lead at RMBI Care Co., says: "We are proud to join the DAA to make an active change for people living with dementia. As a new member, we will work together with a range of organisations to share best practice, build strong campaigns and better inform people about dementia. Raising awareness in the community is vital to help those affected and ensure they can access support quicker and receive the best care possible."
