On Friday the 13th of November, we were lucky enough to be invited to the 6th National Dementia Care Awards at the Hilton Birmingham Metropole. Sponsored by Shaw Healthcare and several other care providers, the awards are designed to recognise the best in dementia care – which is why we were especially honoured to have been nominated in the dementia care product category.
On the night, we were treated to excellent hosting by the wonderful Cheryl Baker as well as an interesting and inspiring talk by Craig Stevens from the evening’s nominated charity, Alive! Activities.
After that the night only got better as, we are delighted to announce, we won the award for Outstanding Dementia Care Product for our Complete Kit! The Complete Kit contains a range of activities designed to suit a large range of personalities and interests.
We were absolutely overjoyed to have won, especially against such strong competition from so many other outstanding teams, and we would like to say a huge thank you to the organisers, sponsors, and our fellow award-winners and nominees for a truly memorable evening. It was incredible to be surrounded by so many hard-working and inspirational people who are making such a big difference to the world of dementia care and we left the event feeling uplifted and motivated. We look forward to seeing and hearing more about the amazing work of all the teams we met as well as striving to improve on and extend our own award-winning range of products.
