Cedars Care Group Residents & Staff are Walking for Alzheimer’s Society
On October 10th, the Cedars Care Group family will be walking with thousands of people united against dementia. Will you join us?
Last year, Cedars Care Group staff from London to Liverpool took part in Memory Walk in bid to help Alzheimer’s society transform the landscape of dementia forever. This year we’ve upped our game and our numbers! Many staff and residents of our two Southport Care homes, Cedar Grange Care Centre and Woodlands Manor, will be putting on their walking shoes for the cause. Also taking part will be Sian, from Head Office and Cedars Care Group Director’s Sarah and Ty.
At Cedars Care Group homes, the person-centred care we provide is geared to help improve the lives of elderly residents living with dementia and Alzheimer’s. It’s our job to support them and their families through the difficult journey of a progressive brain disorder. To date we have had such wonderful results and made some very precious friends along the way. But with 220,000 loved ones developing dementia every year, we believe we need to do more.
Our residents will set the pace on the day of the walk and our route will be an easy and pleasant one. It will extend between the two homes, Cedar Grange and Woodlands Manor, and we will be joined by the Big Picture Day Nursery children and staff along the way.
Memory Walk is an Alzheimer’s Society initiative aiming to raise much needed funds for dementia research, and to help those affected. It’s an annual event that puts dementia on the map and raises awareness of a condition that is on the rise. This year at Memory Walk, Cedars Care Group participants will include many with dementia and many supporting them. All of us will be walking for our loved ones on the day. Please join us or help support our efforts by donating to the Alzheimer’s society through our JustGiving Page.
Please help us spread the word about dementia by sharing this post with your friends and family on social media. Follow our progress over Facebook and Instagram as our team prepares for the big day. And show them that you’re routing for them by Donating to the cause!
