Following the announcement that everyone in the UK should avoid “non-essential” travel and contact with others to curb coronavirus we have taken the difficult decision to postpone all our supported dementia holidays and face-to-face training events throughout April, May and June.
We will be contacting affected people on an individual basis to discuss alternatives, including the option to join a different holiday or organise a new delivery date for training.In order to combat isolation we would like to continue to support people living with dementia and their family and friends as much as possible.
We will be holding regular online ‘Dementia Support Sessions’, which are completely free. You will receive hints and tips and also have a chance to chat with our trained professionals. Find out more here.
Please bear with us at this busy time as we work to contact you as soon as possible. The office phone may not be answered as quickly as usual, you may find it quicker to email us email@example.com
We will keep this page up to date – please check back for regular updates.
If you have concerns or questions about your Dementia Adventure Holiday, please call Catherine on 07415 184636 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
As of April 1st 2020 some of the DA team will be on furlough*, meaning they will not be working for a period of time. Please be assured that we are still very much open and will be delivering all of our online support sessions without interruption. You can still contact us in all the usual ways, including using the email addresses of the team members who will not be working – as they will be forwarded onto the remaining team. We really appreciate you bearing with us during this time, we are doing all we can to remain supportive to people living with dementia and their friends and families.
*The Government has agreed to support businesses and charities at this time with a job retention scheme. Some staff will not work for a period of time (this is known as putting employees on furlough) and employers can access support to continue covering part of the staff costs. Staff will return to work when movement restrictions are lifted.
