The staff working for Richmond’s dementia care were recognized recently for their outstanding work at the annual Richmond Dementia Action Alliance meeting (RDAA).
A variety of people from the community attended the RDAA meeting at Hampton Court Palace on Monday, November 28, including representatives from health services, voluntary organisations, businesses, churches, residential homes, libraries, care agencies and community groups.
The group was formed in order to provide support for local businesses and organisations become dementia friendly.
The RDAA has worked tirelessly to create a community that has a good understanding of dementia and is committed to working collaboratively to help people live well while suffering with the condition.
The group won the Outstanding Dementia Care Product of the Year award at the Dementia Care awards earlier this year.
Richmond Council’s cabinet member for adults’ services, Councillor David Marlow, said: “The meetings are wonderful opportunities to hear about dementia friendly activity taking place across the borough, with a fantastic mixture of organisations represented and information shared.
