Meet our new Dementia Friends

We are proud to announce that five members of the team at Prysm Group have undertaken training to become Dementia Friends.

At Prysm we think it is instrumentally important that we understand more about dementia and how we can help.

Public understanding of dementia is often poor and people living with dementia are often left feeling misunderstood, ostracized and isolated. It is because of this that those with dementia often find it difficult to live independently in their respective communities.

In becoming a Dementia Friend, we are striving towards creating a kinder, more considerate and supportive community where those living with dementia can thrive as an individual and retain their independence for as long as possible.

However, we also recognize that at times, people living with dementia do need more assistance and may benefit by participating in a care home community. Thus, it is vital that we remember every care home resident would much rather be at ‘home’ but are, for health reasons, unable to be.       

Accordingly, we have launched the new Dementia Care & Nursing Home Expo that is due to run at NEC, Birmingham on the 25th & 26th April 2018.

If someone is unable to live at home because of dementia, even after the efforts of initiatives such as Dementia Friends, a care home must be of the utmost classification. However, those involved in the conception of the Dementia Care & Nursing Home Expo, believe the current facilities in the care industry are simply not good enough.

The Dementia Care & Nursing Home Expo thus aims to inspire change in the industry. Currently, the care industry is compounded of a low supply and high demand which means care homes are neglecting to adequately train, monitor and employ qualified staff.

The Dementia Care & Nursing Home Expo was created to improve the care home businesses by providing a platform for owners and managers, to identify and purchase the products and services that are improving care across the industry. The show is centered on an educational basis and provides the opportunity to attend seminars from industry leading care experts.

The second key ethic of the show is to improve and grow the businesses within the care and nursing home sector. The demand for space in care and nursing homes is anticipated to explode in the coming years. By facilitating growth in the care sector, we will see a rise in the number of spaces available. Homes will be forced to compete, culminating in a vast improvement to the services and facilities available. Those care homes who do not adapt and improve their services will find themselves squeezed out of the market, creating yet another increase in the quality of care and choice available.
